WESLEY CHAPEL (FOX 13) -

A daycare van overturned after a collision Friday afternoon in Pasco County.

Around 25 kids were in the van; eight had minor injuries, rescue crews said.

It happened at Highway 56 and Mansfield Road.

A spokesperson from Pasco County Schools said the van was a "Kids R Kids" van with students from Double Branch Elementary School.

School personnel and parents quickly came to the scene, according to Linda Cobbe, with the Pasco County School District.

Another Kids R Kids bus was sent to the location to pick up other students. Authorities say there no serious injuries; that they were mostly some bumps & bruises.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, a car slammed into the bus as it was trying to turn left off of S.R. 56, causing it to flip over.
