GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Scary moments on board a school bus in Gulfport. That bus was involved in an accident at the intersection of Highway 49 and Creosote Road.

Pictures from the scene show the school bus stopped in the middle of the intersection. Gulfport Police squad cars and an AMR ambulance both rushed to the wreck just after 7:00 this morning and surrounded the yellow vehicle. Damage could be seen to the back bumper of the bus.

Rush hour traffic backed up on both Highway 49 and Creosote Road.

WLOX News reporter Jonathan Brannan says within a half hour, police transferred the children on that bus to a different bus, so they could head to school. They haven't said which school they attend, or if any students suffered injuries.

Police had the scene cleared and traffic moving again before 7:40 a.m.
