A YMCA Camp Chase bus carrying 13 campers and staff was hit by a car that lost control on Route 4 on Friday.

According to police, the car lost control on the Burlington-Farmington town line and hit five other cars, as well as the bus.

The bus driver saw the car lose control and was able to move the bus straight enough to only cause minor damage, Samantha Savran, Director of Marketing for the YMCA of Greater Hartford said in a release.

An ambulance came to the scene to check out all campers and staff on the bus, Savran said. All of the children’s parents were contacted and spoke to their children after the incident.
