School Bus Carrying Children Crashes Into Florida Swimming Pool

A school bus carrying students plunged into a backyard swimming pool Friday morning in Orange County, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

The crash happened in Pine Hills.

Orange County Fire Rescue said the bus, carrying nine students to Magnolia School, and a Jeep were involved in a crash. The bus traveled through a fence, into a yard,  and crashed into the pool.

Troopers said the Jeep swerved to avoid a dead cat in the road, prompting the bus to drive off the road.

Fire Rescue tweeted that the driver of the Jeep suffered non-serious injuries. She was taken to a hospital, officials said.

The bus driver and nine children were not injured, rescue crews said.

Magnolia is a school for children with special needs, officials said. Orange County Public Schools said the students' parents were notified of the crash.
