No injuries in 3-vehicle crash with school bus

No one was injured when two passenger vehicles and a Central Cambria School District bus were involved in a crash at 4 p.m. Tuesday on the eastbound lanes of Route 22 at Blue Spruce Road near the border with Indiana County.

The eastbound bus, carrying seven elementary students, was stopped at the bus stop and had its lights activated, Jackson Township police said. An eastbound vehicle failed to stop in time for the bus, swerving into the passing lane to avoid hitting the bus and coming to a stop beside the bus, Jackson Township police said.

Another eastbound vehicle failed to stop in time for the bus and while attempting to come to a stop, tried going between the bus and the other vehicle, hitting both of them, police said.

All three vehicles received minor damage, police said.

The drivers of the passenger vehicles will be issued traffic citations, police said.
