Virginia Beach, Va. - Police have responded to the scene of a school bus accident in Virginia Beach where officials say someone opened the emergency doors of the bus and went out the back of it while the bus was moving.

It happened at the intersection of Dolton Drive and Bonney Road. The bus was carrying kids from the SECEP program which is a special education and alternative education program.

The bus was coming from Renaissance Academy, according to a school official.

NewsChannel 3 has been told that the victim was a female student. She was transported to the hospital with serious injuries.

Officials say there was an argument on the bus that led to a person trying to exit the bus through the front door; when that didn't work, officials say the person went to the back door and went out.

Police are still on the scene investigating.
