BRANFORD, Conn. (WTNH)– Several Branford elementary school students suffered minor injuries after their school bus was cut off by another car, Wednesday afternoon.

Officials immediately contacted the Branford Board of Education. All parents of the students involved were also notified.

The incident is under investigation.
