Funeral for girl, 10, killed in NJ school bus crash

- Family and friends are remembering a student killed when a school bus on a field trip collided with a dump truck in New Jersey.
 
A funeral was held Monday for fifth-grader Miranda Vargas.

The 10-year-old and teacher Jennifer Williamson, 51, died in the crash last Thursday. More than 40 others were injured.

The bus was one of three taking students from East Brook Middle School in Paramus to Waterloo Village, a historic site depicting a Lenape Indian community and once-thriving port. The other buses made it to the site but returned to the school following the crash that left the bus lying on its side on the guardrail of Interstate 80 in Mount Olive.
 
 A funeral Mass for Williamson is scheduled for Thursday.
