NBC10 reports a passing SUV struck a school bus Friday morning in Philadelphia, leaving three passengers on the bus with minor injuries.
The crash occurred on East Wyoming Avenue in proximity of the Juanita neighborhood while on route to John Hancock Middle School early morning.
Passengers who sustained minor injuries were a 13-year old girl (leg and neck pain). 33-year old bus driver (minor facial abrasion) and bus aide (back and leg pain), per Philadelphia police.
The victims were then taken to St. Christopher’s Hospital forChildren where officials assessed their injuries. None of them were deemed life-threatening.
The driver of the opposing vehicle, a 2016 Honda CRV, was not hurt amid the wreckage.
An initial investigation indicated that the SUV driver attempted to pass the bus on its left when headed eastbound on Wyoming, which then caused the SUV to clip the school bus.
Police said no charges have been filed on the crash as the investigation continues.
