PATTON — State police in Ebensburg are investigating a school bus crash that happened Monday on Route 36 in Clearfield Township.

The Cambria Heights school bus was carrying 27 students when the driver apparently blacked out and sheared off a pine tree between the Chest Spring and Patton areas, schools superintendent Michael Strasser said.

None of the high school or elementary students was hurt, he said. The students were triaged at the scene and released to their parents, Strasser said.   

The driver was taken to Altoona Regional Hospital, he said.
