Two police officers were hospitalized Friday after they were injured in a Boston school bus fight.

The two officers responded to the scene around 8 a.m. after receiving a 911 call about the fight, said police. Upon arrival, a student bit one officer and kicked the other in the head.

"Violence of any kind is not tolerated in the Boston Public Schools," a district statement read. "Our buses are an extension of our classrooms."

The bus was transporting students to a summer learning program when the fight allegedly broke out between three students, police said. It is unclear why the fight started.

After the fight, one child was taken to a local hospital with a minor injury sustained before the officers arrived on the scene. Both officers' injuries were non-life-threatening, but the officers were taken to the hospital.
