OLD BRIDGE, N.J., Jan. 10 (UPI) -- A crash involving a school bus and a commuter bus in Old Bridge, N.J., Thursday morning injured more than 12 people, police said.

The school bus was in the process of picking up students when an Academy commuter bus hit it from behind, The (Newark, N.J.) Star-Ledger reported.

The Academy bus crashed head-first into a tree, while the school bus, which had just a driver and an aide on board, rolled over and hit a generator and pumping station, police said.

Old Bridge Police Captain Arthur Carullo said the Academy bus driver, identified as Daniel Jean-Pierre, 42, suffered serious injuries. He was air-lifted to a Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital where he was listed in critical condition, said hospital spokesman Peter Haigney.

Another passenger, a 31-year-old woman, is also critical at Robert Wood Johnson, the spokesman said.

Others who were injured, including the school bus aide, were treated at the scene.
