As it was turning, it was struck on the right side by an eastbound Ford Fusion. The bus then hit the house on Grand.

The driver of the bus was transported to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries. The driver of the Ford Fusion and a 2-year-old child were also taken to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries. Police say the driver of the Ford Fusion was wearing her seat belt and her child was properly secured in a forward facing child seat located in the center back seat.

Evidence is still being reviewed and charges are pending in the investigation.
