RIDGELY, Md.- Maryland State Police say 11 people were taken to the hospital Tuesday morning after a work van collided with a bus carrying disabled students in Caroline County.

Police said the incident happened at around 8:30 a.m. at the intersection of Oakland Road (Rt. 312) and Benedictine Lane in Ridgely. According to police, a preliminary investigation revealed that 38-year-old Gary Nesselroad, of Ridgely, was driving a GMC work van north on Oakland Road, when for unknown reasons, the van rear-ended a Delmarva Community Transit bus operated by 60-year-old Michael M. Dunn. According to police, Dunn was attempting to make a left turn onto Benedictine Lane from Oakland Road when the accident occurred.

Nesselroad was transported by MSP Trooper 6 to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore. Dunn was transported by Talbot EMS to Easton Memorial Hospital. Nine of the transit bus' 23 passengers- ranging from 22-51 years of age- were transported by EMS to either Easton Memorial or Queen Anne's Medical Center.

Troopers said charges are pending in connection with the crash, which remains under investigation.
