STOCKTON — Two students were taken to local hospitals with minor injuries after a school bus left the road and ended up in a cornfield this afternoon in the town of Stockton.

The crash occurred around noon on Route 380, between Pierson and Cemetery roads.

Initial reports indicated that a bus had left the road and had rolled over. The bus could be seen upright in a field with cornstocks up to its windows.

It’s not immediately clear what caused the bus to exit the road.

The students, the county official said, were part of BOCES. A school representative was traveling to the scene.
