Miller County -- A semi-truck and a school bus have collided on Highway 27 and White's Bridge Road in Miller County.

Around 3:30, a tractor trailer rig slammed into a pickup truck, which then slammed into the rear of a mini-van, which then hit a Miller County Headstart bus.

The school bus was stopped in the road to unload students when the tractor trailer rig started the chain reaction crash.

The big rig hit a pickup truck. We're told there was one man in the truck. The truck then slammed into the rear of a mini-van. It's so badly damaged that its barely recognizable as a van.

We're told that a Miller County woman and her four children were inside that van and were badly injured.

The van then slammed into a Miller County Headstart bus. We don't believe any of those students were seriously injured.

As of 6:30PM, six people from this crash had been airlifted to a hospital in Tallahassee for treatment.
