MARION OAKS, Fla. (AP) - Ten children have been taken to the hospital after their school bus was struck by a car in central Florida.

The Florida Highway Patrol reports that a 2008 Mustang ran a stop sign and hit the bus in Marion Oaks Wednesday morning.

Sixty-five children were riding on their way to Dunnellon Elementary School.

Marion County Fire Rescue officials say 10 of the children complained of neck and back pains and were taken to area hospitals as a precaution. The others were transported on another bus to school.

The driver of the Mustang was charged with failure to stop at a stop sign and failure to have proof of insurance.
