The injured students and the bus monitor were taken to Jennie Stuart Medical Center. The bus driver was not injured. The deer was killed.

Students that were uninjured were taken by another bus to Crofton Elementary. School officials called all of the parents of injured children to speak to them directly about the wreck.
