Children Hospitalized After Van Crash in Hyde Park

River Street in the Hyde Park section of Boston was shut down during the afternoon commute Thursday as police responded to crash involving a minivan with multiple children on board.

The accident happened near the intersection of River Street and Huntington Avenue just after 4 p.m. Thursday.

Eyewitnesses said they say at least a half dozen young children be taken out of the van and transported to the hospital.

"I saw blood running down a little girl's face. I didn't know if there was glass on her face, but for a little kid to go through that, it's tragic," neighbor Jose Herraez said.

NBC10 Boston obtained surveillance video from a nearby business that shows the minivan swerving to get out of the way of another vehicle.

Boston Police said the injuries were minor. River Street re-opened just after 6 p.m. Thursday. The cause of the crash is under investigation.
