CLINTON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A Clinton school bus driver sustained minor injuries during a crash Tuesday morning and was transported to a local hospital, along with the driver of the second vehicle involved.

Although students were on the bus, none of them reported having any injuries.

According to Clinton schools Public Information Officer Sandi Beason, the crash occurred before 9 a.m. Tuesday morning, when a Clinton school bus was involved in a two-vehicle traffic accident on Northside Drive.

Clinton Police Department interim chief Mike Warren confirms that both the school bus driver and the driver of the other vehicle involved were transported to a local hospital. Chief Warren says the injuries did not appear to be life threatening to either victim.

The bus was carrying Clinton High School and Sumner Hill students, and was struck by another vehicle. None of the students were injured and the bus driver sustained minor injuries. Beason says all students have been transported to school.

Chief Warren adds that a second school bus came to the scene to transport the students to school.

No charges have been filed in the crash at this time, and Chief Warren says the investigation into what caused the crash is ongoing. He adds that at this point it appears the driver of the car responsible for striking the bus drifted into the school bus' lane, side swiping the bus.
