ANDOVER — Minor injuries resulted from a crash Tuesday morning on Interstate 495 north involving a tractor-trailer and a school bus containing dozens of students, according to Fire Chief Michael Mansfield.

Mansfield said the bus, from Pyne Arts School in Lowell, was carrying nine chaperones and 48 students – mostly aged 9 to 10 years old – on a field trip to the Museum of Science in Boston.

The collision took place on I-495 north just before Interstate 93 southbound.

The crash resulted in cuts and scrapes to two students, who were treated by first responders, said Mansfield. Neither driver suffered any injuries.

Passengers were moved to another bus which left the scene.

Only the breakdown lane was impacted by the crash. The accident is currently under investigation by Massachusetts State Police.
