Vancleave school bus rear ended by SUV

VANCLEAVE, MS (WLOX) -

A Vancleave school bus trip home was interrupted Tuesday afternoon after the bus was rear ended by a white Ford Explorer, according to officials.  

Assistant Superintendent of Vancleave Schools Todd Knight said the accident happened at Highway 57 near HP Davis Grocery and Heather's Convenience Store. Knight said the bus was less than a quarter of a mile away from school.

The six children on the bus are from Vancleave Upper Elementary and Vancleave Lower Elementary and were uninjured, Knight said. A bus assistant was also onboard, but was uninjured.

However, according to authorities, the driver of the bus was transported to Ocean Springs Hospital with minor injuries.

Mississippi Highway Patrol troopers responded to the accident. Mississippi Highway Patrol Corporal Jason Gazzo said the driver of the SUV was cited for failure to yield.

"The students were safe at all times. Administration did a good job of handling the accident and making sure parents were notified," Knight said.

Knight said the parents of the students have been notified.
