WASHINGTON, Nov. 26 (UPI) -- A shuttle bus carrying children to a private school was involved in a three-vehicle crash in Washington Monday, injuring five, officials said.

Three children headed to Field School were taken to area hospitals, as were two adults -- the bus driver and a driver in one of the other vehicles involved, The Washington Post said. District of Columbia Batalion Chief Brian Lee said the injuries ranged from moderate to serious, but none appeared life-threatening.

Will Layman, a spokesman for Field School, said there were 18 students on the 40-seat limo bus who had been picked up from Friendship Heights Metro Station, about two miles from the school, which houses students grades six to 12.

The accident's cause is under investigation, police said.
