Car rear-ends school bus in Proctor

PROCTOR, Minn. -- A Proctor school-bus driver and four students escaped injury when their bus was rear-ended by a car Tuesday morning.

The woman driving the passenger car apparently suffered minor injuries, including a cut on her head, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.

The crash was reported shortly before 8 a.m. on Boundary Avenue between Interstate 35 and U.S. Highway 2. According to the State Patrol, the bus that was hit was stopped behind a car and a second bus that was picking up students. The bus that was hit didn’t have its flashers on because it was not picking up or dropping off passengers, the State Patrol said. The cause of the crash is under investigation.
