WINTER PARK, Fla. — A school bus carrying 46 students was involved in a crash with another vehicle on Friday morning, according to Orange County Fire Rescue.
- Sedan, school bus collide on Aloma Avenue in Winter Park
- Fire Rescue personnel said no one need to go to a hospital
- FHP says bus driver failed to slow, struck back of Mazda sedan
The crash happened at the 6900 block of Aloma Avenue in Winter Park.
An Orange County Public Schools spokeswoman said a black car cut off the school bus carrying Lakemont Elementary School students.
However, a crash report issued by the Florida Highway Patrol said the bus driver was ticketed for careless driving. The report said a four-door Mazda slowed to make a right turn into an apartment complex, and the bus driver failed to slow down in time and hit the back of the Mazda.
Troopers were busy with numerous crashes Friday morning and weren't able to respond right away, Lt. Kim Montes said.
An earlier tweet from Fire Rescue said the driver of the car and a student were injured. The agency later said no one needed to go to a hospital, though the two people incurred minor injuries, FHP said.
Another school bus came to collect the children and took them to school, the school district said.
