Rural/Metro responds to Sahuarita bus, vehicle collision

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Capt. Grant Cesarek with the Rural/Metro Fire Department said crews from station 79 in Sahuarita responded to the scene of a multiple vehicle collision involving a school bus around 2:45 p.m.

Rural/Metro officials said 29 kids, varied in ages between Kindergarten and 12th grade, were on the bus at the time of the incident at La Canada and El Toro Road. Sahuarita police say the bus driver had stopped on the road to let kids off the bus. A truck stopped behind the bus, but a convertible slammed into the truck, which then crashed into the school bus.

No significant injuries were reported. Four kids on the bus complained of headaches and neck pain, though they did not need to be taken to the hospital.

The driver of the convertible was taken to the hospital with minor injuries, including a possible broken bone.

School district officials were on scene to assist with communications to the parents.
