KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Two school buses collided and three children were injured Tuesday afternoon, Kansas City police said.

The crash happened about 2:45 p.m. at 16th Street and Van Brunt Boulevard near the St. Paul School of Theology. The two buses were transporting East High School students home.

Ambulances rushed to the scene and paramedics treated three students.

One youth suffered a broken tooth in the crash. His worried mother rushed to the scene to check on her son. One boy suffered a bloody nose when he hit his face on the seat in front of him.

Police say one school bus crashed into the back of a bus when the first bus slowed down because a dog ran across the path of the bus.

Thirty-four students were on board one bus while 24 were on a second. The injuries are considered minor.

Worried parents rushed to the scene to pick up their children.

John Bush, 14, said the first bus driver slammed on the brakes when a dog scampered in front of the bus. He last saw the small puppy running into a field close to where the collision occurred.

Both buses were operated by First Student for the Kansas City School District.

After the crash, the dog continued to scamper in the area.
