Four Brick Church Pike Middle School students were taken to Vanderbilt's Monroe Carell Children's Hospital with minor injuries after a near miss en route to school Wednesday morning, NewsChannel5 reports.

The bus driver told authorities he slammed on the brakes when a car pulled out in front of him at the intersection of Hydes Ferry Road and County Hospital Road. The driver avoided a collision, but several students were hurt when the bus screeched to a halt.

The students are expected to be OK.
