WASHINGTON COUNTY, Tenn. (WJHL) — No students were injured after a Thursday morning crash involving two cars and a Washington County school bus, school officials and the Tennessee Highway Patrol report.
According to Jarrod Adams, Chief Operations Officer at Washington County, Tennessee Schools, a Washington County school bus was stopped to pick up students Thursday morning on Highway 36 near Gray.
A car coming from the opposite direction reportedly stopped due to the stop sign deployed on the school bus. Another car then rear-ended the stopped vehicle, pushing the car into the school bus, Adams said.
Adams told News Channel 11 no students on the bus were injured and were transported to school on a different bus.
A crash report from the Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP) confirmed Adams’ statement.
The THP reports the bus received only minor damage and confirmed none of the four children on the bus were injured.
According to the crash report, both drivers of the other vehicles were injured in the crash. The driver of the vehicle that reportedly rear-ended the stopped car “was reportedly inattentive and was cited for violation of the due care law,” THP reports.
The two drivers reportedly received minor injuries and were transported to a local hospital where they were listed as being in stable condition.
