Children aboard a Clinton district school bus escaped injury today when their bus was scraped by a car on U.S. 49.
District spokeswoman Sandi Beason said the minor accident involving bus no. 50 occurred at about 7:30 a.m. when a car pulled next to the bus in a one-vehicle turn lane on U.S. 49. The bus scraped the front of the car as the bus turned onto the highway, Beason said.
Students were taken to school as usual, she said. A portion of U.S. 49 where several neighborhoods are located is within the boundaries of the Clinton district.
