A Cedar Springs school bus was hit from behind by another vehicle Monday morning.
According to Assistant Superintendent David Cairy, the bus was stopped on northbound Algoma at 22 Mile, when a van struck the back of the bus and ended up underneath the bumper of the bus.
Cairy said that they notified police, and transportation supervisor Jerry Gavin went out and checked on the students, as well as arranged transportation for them and the rest of the route to get to school. About a dozen elementary students were on the bus at the time. Cairy said there were no injuries.
“We are very pleased with the way the staff handled it,” said Cairy.
The official police report was not available at press time.
