Three Warren County students and a school bus driver were taken to the hospital Friday afternoon after a wreck on Mississippi 27 near China Grove Road.

Anna Marie Passman, 46, 200 Roy Young Road, was the driver of a Vicksburg Warren School District bus, which was carrying about a dozen students from Warren Central Junior High School, when the bus was rear-ended by a pickup driven by James D. Davis Jr., 105 Normandy Drive, Clinton, Trooper Wayne Smith of the Mississippi Highway Safety Patrol said.

Smith said the wreck occurred when Davis was distracted from an object falling in the back seat of his truck and had hit the rear of the bus, which was stopped.
