No injuries in school bus fender-bender
BARSTOW • An early Friday morning school bus fender-bender at Skyline North Elementary resulted in no injuries, authorities said.
The incident was reported at approximately 8:40 a.m., according to Barstow California Highway Patrol Officer Don Spiker.
A school bus was parked in front of the school to let out about 40 students when another bus carrying roughly 60 pulled up behind it, Spiker said.
“The driver of the second bus thought she pulled the emergency brake, or did not pull it all the way,” he said.
The bus rolled forward and rear-ended the front bus.
Although injuries were initially reported, CHP arrived to find none, Spiker said.
“A couple of kids” complained of pain, he said, but did not seek medical treatment.
Two CHP officers as well as officials from Skyline and the Barstow Unified School District were on scene.
