    Scene where a truck slammed into more than a dozen cars and a school bus on East Main St. in Stamford Tuesday.

    Thirteen students were taken to the hospital after their school bus was hit by an out of control truck in Stamford, Connecticut Tuesday afternoon.

    The truck hit at least 15 vehicles as it barreled down East Main Street around 2:30 p.m., according to police. A woman driving one of the cars was listed in critical condition Tuesday evening.

    The incident apparently stemmed from a domestic dispute and the driver took the truck from his place of employment, police said. The truck driver was in critical condition after the crash, according to police.

    Investigators said it appeared the driver intentionally aimed at the vehicles. Police are treating the incident as a criminal act.

    One student on the bus was taken to the hospital by ambulance. 12 others, plus the bus driver were driven to the hospital on a separate bus to be checked out as a precaution.

    There were 27 Stamford High School students on the bus at the time of the crash, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Joshua Starr said.

    Police were still surveying the area to determine if more cars had been damaged by the truck.
