BLOOMFIELD, Conn. (WTNH) — Bloomfield Police are investigating what led up to a crash that involved a car and a school bus Tuesday afternoon.
Just before 1:30 p.m., police responded to the crash scene at the intersection of Blue Hills Avenue and Farmstead Circle. Investigators say that a Honda Civic had been traveling northbound on Blue Hills Avenue when it crossed the center line and struck a school bus that had been traveling on the southbound side.
The bus was a Windsor School District bus and was carrying 13 middle school students at the time. Neither the students nor the bus driver were injured.
The driver of the Honda, a 66-year-old woman from Windsor, was taken to St. Francis Hospital with ‘moderate’ injuries. The road was temporarily closed to traffic while the woman was removed from the vehicle.
Students were taken to 1133 Blue Hills Avenue, the Bloomfield Public Schools Board of Education facility, for reuniting with parents and guardians.
The accident remains under investigation.
