Twelve people, including at least nine children, were hospitalized Friday after a dump truck and a school bus collided in Holyoke, Mass., according to a report from WWLP-TV.

The crash occurred around 3 p.m. local time as the bus was leaving E.N. White Elementary School, the report said.  A surveillance camera that was mounted to the roof of a nearby home captured the incident on video. Use the player above to watch it.

“As soon as I saw that school bus my chest wanted to pop out,” Carmen Santiago, a witness who spoke to WWLP-TV. “They were really afraid. They were scared, they were crying, they wanted their parents. I saw mothers running up the streets from everywhere. They just wanted to see their child.”

No serious injuries were reported.
