CHICAGO (CBS) —  Ten children and seven adults were taken to the hospital, after three school buses taking them on a YMCA field trip were involved in a chain reaction crash with a dump truck loaded with landscaping material Thursday morning in north suburban Libertyville.

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office said, around 10:45 a.m., the school buses were headed west on Route 137 near River Road, when they slowed down for traffic in front of them, and a Mack dump truck was unable to stop before rear-ending one of the buses.
