“SBVAC, Stony Brook Hospital EMS and the Setauket Fire Department responded to treat the student who was transported to the Emergency Room for treatment of what are believed, at this time, to be non-life threatening injuries,” UPD Assistant Chief of Police, Eric Olsen, wrote in an email. 

The two students on the bus at the time as well as the driver sustained no injuries.
