LAKE VILLAGE, Ark. -- Three school buses collided in a chain-reaction crash Monday in southwestern Arkansas, sending dozens of youngsters to a hospital but few with serious injuries, authorities said.

There were 76 people in the emergency room at a hospital in Lake Village, said state police spokesman Bill Sadler. Ambulance workers listed two people as having serious injuries, he said.

But "everything I saw was bumps and bruises," said state police Cpl. Mitch Grant.

James Cathey, a dispatch supervisor with the police in nearby Eudora, said the crash involved three buses from the Lake Village School District.

The crash appeared to be a "rear-end, chain collision," he said.

The scene is in far southeastern Arkansas, near where that state borders Louisiana and Mississippi.
