UPDATE: 
New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy says the crash of a dump truck and a school bus taking children to a field trip has killed a student and an adult.
A boy who was on the bus says the bus fell over and people were left "hanging from their seat belts."
The yellow school bus was left on the median of Interstate 80 in Mount Olive on Thursday with its front end crushed or ripped off. A red dump truck with a mangled front end was parked along the highway nearby.
The Paramus (puh-RAM'-uhs) school district says the bus was taking students from East Brook Middle School to Waterloo Village, a historic site near the crash scene.
Authorities say multiple people have been injured and hospitalized.
The Democratic governor went to the school and says his heart is "broken by today's tragedy."
