Indiana State Police said a box truck hit the school bus and left the scene.
The bus that crashed was one of a number of school buses from the Lafayette area that visited Indianapolis Thursday for a field trip, a parent told WISH-TV sister station WLFI-TV. The children were on their way back when the bus crashed.
The accident occurred around 2 p.m. near the 128-mile marker by the Interstate 865 interchange. As of 4 p.m., all lanes were open again.
