Two people were injured following a traffic accident involving a vehicle and a school bus.
According to East Ridge Fire Chief Mike Williams, the accident happened at about 2 p.m. Thursday afternoon at the corner of Fike Drive and Moore Road. The driver and a passenger in the car were taken by Puckett EMS to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
Officials said there were seven children and two adults on the school bus. None of those people suffered injuries, officials said. According to Chief Williams the children were from “local schools.”
A second bus came to the accident scene, picked up the children on the bus and continued on its route, Chief Williams said. Firefighters with ERFD assisted with the transfer of the children.
