No serious injuries for driver who crashed into school bus downtown

A school bus and a car were in a collision in Abbotsford on Tuesday morning, as students were heading back to class.

The crash took place near Peardonville and Beaver Street, by a public bus stop.

Photos of the crash show that a small sedan was lodged under the rear side of a school bus. The bus was lifted up about a foot by the car. Witnesses have said that the driver was alone and was able to get out of the vehicle on his own.

UPDATE:

The Abbotsford School District has confirmed there were five children on the bus at the time of the crash.

“Emergency services immediately responded to the scene and assessed the students and bus driver,” a district spokesperson said. “No injuries were sustained, and all students and staff were cleared by emergency services. Due to damage to the rear of the school bus, we brought in a relief vehicle and could still successfully transport students to school.”
