GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. — An SUV rear-ended a school bus in Guilford County Wednesday morning, according to Highway Patrol.

Four special needs children were on the bus, but no one was reported injured.

Guilford County Schools reports the bus was First Student bus number 136. GCS contracts with First Student to transport children with special needs or pre-kindergarten students.

Troopers say a Suburban hit the back of the bus near the intersection of E. Lee Street and Castleton Road.

The school bus stopped to make a left turn to Simkins Elementary when the driver of a Chevrolet Suburban ran into the back of the bus, according to First Student.

There was minimal damage to the bus, but the SUV may be totaled.
