DIN­WID­DIE — A school bus car­ry­ing 20 stu­dents was in­volved in an ac­ci­dent at Mid­way El­e­men­tary School Tues­day.

The crash hap­pened at 8:25 a.m., when school bus num­ber 13 was in­volved with a “mi­nor” two-ve­hi­cle ac­ci­dent, ac­cord­ing to a state­ment re­leased by Din­wid­die Pub­lic Schools be­fore noon Tues­day.

The school bus was en­ter­ing the bus loop at Mid­way El­e­men­tary School from Cox Road when it was struck by an­other ve­hi­cle ex­it­ing the school park­ing lot.

Based on as­sess­ments made at the scene, there were no in­juries re­ported by the stu­dents, the bus driver, or the driver of the other ve­hi­cle.

The fam­i­lies of the 20 stu­dents on board were con­tacted by the school’s prin­ci­pal. The Vir­ginia State Po­lice are con­duct­ing an in­ves­ti­ga­tion of the in­ci­dent.
