Seven high school students were sent to hospital Monday morning after a crash involving a school bus and two pickup trucks in St. Amable, south of Montreal.

Local police say the accident happened just after 7 o'clock at the corner intersection of Principale and Cardinal Sts.

They say one of the pickups ran through a red light.

The students, from two high schools in Boucherville, were taken to hospital as a precaution, with only minor injuries.

The board, the Commission scolaire des Patriotes, says parents have been notified of the incident.
