HOOVER – No injuries were reported in a two-vehicle wreck involving a Shelby County school bus the morning of Dec. 18 on U.S. 280 near the YMCA.
“We received the call reporting the accident at 6:47 a.m.,” Capt. Gregg Rector with the Hoover Police Department wrote in an email. “Both vehicles were traveling westbound on Highway 280 at Doug Baker Boulevard.”
A 2005 gold Saab hit the rear of the bus, causing minor damage to the bus and front-end damage to the Saab, Rector said.
The far right lane of U.S. 280 was blocked until the vehicles were cleared from the roadway at about 7:30 a.m.
“Neither vehicle had to be towed,” Rector said. “There were 37 children on the bus, ranging in age from 12-16. Again, no one was injured.”
Hoover Police officers and paramedics responded to the scene.
