A school bus accident took place Tuesday when a bus transporting students to Ramay Junior High School and Fayetteville High School crashed into the back of a Chevrolet Express minivan.
Police say the bus, driven by Marvelous Higginbottom, was traveling along Wedington Drive at Salem Road just before 8 a.m. when it rear-ended the Chevy van, driven by Tony Fisher. According to initial investigations, the bus’s brakes may have malfunctioned, contributing to the collision.
No injuries were reported from either vehicle. Police say that the bus was slowing as it approached the van, and that no citation was issued because the crash was caused by a mechanical fault. Damage to both vehicles was minor.
