The driver of a Davenport school bus was ticketed following a crash this morning. The bus was headed to an elementary school when the driver hit half a dozen cars parked along a street.
Fifteen elementary school students were on the bus at the time. Police say there were no serious injuries although one student, an 11-year-old girl, was treated for a minor injury and released. Another bus took the other kids to school.
Police say when the bus driver lost control, she couldn’t stop and started hitting the cars, which were pushed down the block and into yards. One car rolled around a corner and hit another parked car.
Police cited the bus driver for failure to maintain control.
