Buses carrying Eddy Elementary School students involved in crash

DUXBURY – Buses carrying students from the Eddy Elementary School in Brewster were involved in an accident Wednesday.

It happened on Route 3 south in Duxbury between exits 11 and 10.

A total of 95 students on two buses were returning from a field trip to the Museum of Science in Boston.

The Duxbury Fire Department reported 8 people were transported from the scene to Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital in Plymouth.

Brewster School Committee member Jessica Larsen, in a social media post, said Nauset School Superintendent Tom Conrad was on hand at the Eddy when a backup bus arrived with the students.

“My heart is with our children and families, teachers, and chaperones as they deal with the events of today,” she said in the post.

The crash is under investigation by State Police.

Brewster Fire responded ambulances to the school when the buses arrived there. Several students were evaluated and one was taken to Cape Cod Hospital.
