Eight students and the bus driver were taken to Licking Memorial Hospital.

In a press release, OSHP said that the driver of the Mustang was taken to Mount Carmel East with serious injuries.

The state patrol says the driver who ran the light was driving on a suspended license. BMV records show he hasn't had a valid license since 2000 and has two OVIs on his record.

10TV is not identifying that man at this time because he has not been charged with a crime.
