The students and the driver of the tractor-trailer were transported to area hospitals with reported scrapes and bruises and a possible broken leg, officials said.

The tractor-trailer, which was transporting sand, overturned and leaked diesel fuel, prompting a response by the Gloucester County Haz-Mat Assessment Unit.

The National Transportation Safety Board was been notified.
