    The crash occurred just before 3 p.m. at Georgia Avenue and Hathaway Drive, county fire department spokesman Capt. Oscar Garcia said. Thirteen Northwood High School students were aboard the bus.

    Seven students were taken to a hospital with minor injuries. The bus driver also was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries. On person in the car suffered serious injuries, Garcia said.
