A silver Toyota rear-ended a St. Lucie County School District school bus in Port St. Lucie. The crash happened when the Manatee Academy K-8 School bus stopped at a traffic light at the intersection of Del Rio and California Boulevards, Port St. Lucie police said. There were 37 students on board at the time of the accident.
The bus was transporting students from nearby Manatee Academy K-8, Master Sgt. Frank Sabol said. “It looks like the female drive that hit the bus may not have been paying full attention to the roadway,” Sabol said.
Police directed the Manatee Academy K-8 School bus driver to pull into a nearby Cumberland Farms parking lot after the crash. It is unknown if there were injuries in the school bus accident.
