Two students were hurt Friday morning when the school bus they were in veered off a Chanceford Township road and went into a ditch, state police.
It happened about 8:30 a.m. in the 11000 block of Pomraning Road, between Dettinger and Gum Tree roads.
The bus driver, 60-year-old Bernard Bacon, told police he took his eyes off the road to deal with some kids who were playing around at the back of the bus, said Trooper Adam Reed, a state police spokesman.
While he wasn't watching the road, the bus went into a ditch, Reed said.
The Red Lion Area school bus was loaded with students on their way to an Amish school, and two of them suffered non-life-threatening head injuries, he said.
The two students were taken to York Hospital for treatment, said Reed, who estimated they were 10 to 12 years old.
Bacon will be cited, Reed said.
After the crash, emergency officials discussed setting up a landing zone to bring in a medical helicopter, according to 911 radio transmissions. But it turned out the helicopter wasn't needed, a 911 supervisor confirmed.
