School bus involved in a.m. crash

A school bus was involved in a two-vehicle crash Tuesday morning near the intersection of 25th Street and U.S. 31 in Columbus.

Lt. Matt Harris, spokesman for the Columbus Police Department, says that, just before 11 a.m., an engine from the Columbus Fire Department was responding to a fire alarm at Columbus North. A Jeep was able to stop to allow the engine through the intersection, but the bus, traveling behind the Jeep, was not. Harris says that the front of the bus ran in to the back of the Jeep. There were no students on the bus at the time of the crash, says Harris. He adds that both drivers, who have yet to be identified, were taken to Columbus Regional Health with minor injuries.
