Evidence at the scene suggested that the school bus was rear-ended by the passenger car, but that might not be the case.  What exactly took place could not be confirmed before this story posted.

The first unit to arrive on scene was the Lake Hamilton Security Officer.  He took charge of the scene until relieved by the Sheriff’s Patrol.  Once they arrived, he was able to handle the school end of what needed to be done which included dispatching a second bus to the scene to continue the school bus route.

70 West Fire & Rescue Troops responded quickly and assisted as needed.

LifeNet dispatched 1 Ambulance Crew.  They arrived quickly and were available to anyone that may have needed them.  No injuries were reported that I am aware of.

Traffic flow was interrupted for only a few minutes.
