PRAIRIE GROVE – No one was injured in an accident that involved a school bus Wednesday afternoon, a fire official said.

The school bus was stopped in the westbound lane of Route 176 about a half-mile east of Snap-On Tools when an eastbound vehicle swerved to avoid a stopped car it was about to rear-end, hitting the front driver-side bumper of the bus, Nunda Rural Fire Protection District Lt. Neil Austin said.

The car was going about 20 mph when it hit the bus, and so it caused minimal damage, he said.

There were three students in addition to the bus driver on the school bus, Austin said. Everyone involved was released at the scene and did not need treatment.
