SALT LAKE CITY -- A group of middle school students is shaken up but OK after a school bus crashed into a pole.

As many as 60 students from Albion Middle School were on board when the bus hit the pole, knocking it over and breaking the bus's windshield in the parking lot of Butler Middle School at 7530 S. 2700 East.

There is no official word on what caused the crash, but it appears the driver was following another bus and didn't see the pole or was distracted.

The driver suffered only minor injuries. The students were not injured. Paramedics arrived and checked them, but no one was transported. Some of the students who were shaken up were sent home.

The bus was en route to an elementary school in back of Butler Middle, where Albion students are attending while their school is being remodeled.
