FRONT ROYAL – A Warren County school bus was involved in a crash with a passenger vehicle  Monday morning at the intersection of Second Street and Royal Avenue.  The bus was carrying about 20 students, according to a first responder at the scene.

None of the students appeared to be injured in the incident and the car’s driver, whose identity has not been confirmed, refused treatment at the scene.

A witness who saw the accident occur, who asked not to be identified, said the car that struck the bus failed to stop at the stop sign on Second Street and “t-boned” the bus as it  traveled south on Royal Avenue.

Warren County Public School Transportation Director Aaron Mitchell, who was on the scene of the accident, said a statement would be forthcoming from Superintendent Greg Drescher.
