Car goes under school bus
Langley RCMP is currently on the scene of a collision involving a school bus and a passenger car. The school bus was occupied only by the driver, no students were on board. The collision took place shortly after noon.
Police believe the passenger car, a Toyota, rear-ended the southbound school bus as it slowed for a red light 32nd Avenue. The car went under the back of the bus and became pinned.
Of the three occupants in the vehicle, two were able to exit uninjured, however the driver remained trapped for a short time. She has since been freed from the vehicle and transported to hospital for treatment of what are believed to be minor injuries.
The male driver of the school bus was uninjured, but obviously shaken up.
