    A school bus carrying seven children in the Bronx was struck by a car that ran a red light Wednesday morning, causing it to crash into a restaurant, officials said. 

    The Department of Education said one student had a cut lip, and that no other injuries were reported. The children and the driver and bus matron were all taken to Jacobi Hospital for observation.

    FDNY said the bus was hit just before 8 a.m. on Southern Boulevard near East Tremont Avenue.

    DOE said the car hit the driver's side of the bus, which caused it to run onto the sidewalk and hit the front of the restaurant.
