Student slightly hurt in bus accident


A driver without a license collided with a school bus Wednesday morning and two people received “what appeared to be minor injuries,” reports the West Sacramento Fire Department. The two injured people – a student the vehicle driver without a license – were treated at local hospitals.

The accident occurred at 7:48 a.m. near Poplar and Merkley Avenues.

After help arrived, students on the bus were transferred to a second bus to go to school.

The CHP investigated the accident because it involved a public school bus with kids, and determined that the unlicensed driver was at fault, reported West Sacramento police.
