WEST HAVEN, Conn. - Police say a coach bus carrying Princeton University students heading to a football game at Yale has crashed into a building in Connecticut, sending four of them to the hospital with minor injuries.

Police say the bus driver was also injured in Saturday's crash in West Haven. Yale New Haven Hospital says the students are in good condition and the driver is in fair condition.

Princeton said in a statement that the students were taken to the hospital "as a precaution."

The students who weren't injured were put on another bus to the game.

Police say they believe the driver lost control because of a brake issue.
