City bus rear-ends school bus with students on board

Posted:
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

More than a dozen children were hurt when a city transit bus rear-ended a school bus.

Police say the driver of the school bus was stopped after a child threw a snowball at the bus, then it was hit by the city bus. It happened around 3:00pm Tuesday afternoon near West Middle School.

One child was taken to the hospital, but only as a precaution. Police say around 20 others suffered minor injuries. "Parents were notified if their kid was claiming to be in juried. They stayed on the scene until the parents got here, or they had to be transported to the hospital," said Sgt. Brad Bollinger, Sioux City police.

Those students that weren't injured were taken home by a different school bus.

Police say 29 students were on the school bus and 48 passengers were on the city bus.
