No one was seriously injured when a car rear-ended a Clinton Elementary school bus on Flat Creek Road Wednesday afternoon, Sept. 26.

Lancaster County School District officials said the accident occurred around 5:45 p.m. as the bus stopped to drop off one of nine students on their way home after the Homework Center after- school program.

District safety and transportation director Bryan Vaughn said Emergency Medical Services was called to the scene, but none of the students or the car’s driver were seriously injured.

“Everybody appeared to be OK, though there were a couple of students since that time whose parents have chosen to have them checked out by a doctor,” Vaughn said. 

“It’s my understanding that the vehicle went up under the bus and there was substantial property damage, but I don't believe the driver suffered any serious injuries," he said.

Vaughn said the 23-year-old male driver of the car was cited in the incident. 

An accident report was not available as of press time in order to confirm charges.
