The accident occurred on a four-lane highway near Caroline High School, officials said. The van's driver was a 17-year-old student, who was also injured, Lippa told the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
The teenager has not been charged, authorities said.
Phone calls from Inside Edition to the sheriff's department rang unanswered Friday evening.
The van's driver apparently did not see the bus and drove across the highway, then collided with the bus, Lippa told the newspaper.
None of the injuries appeared to be life-threatening, he said.
