COLUMBIA — Two people were injured in a crash after a car rear-ended a school bus during its morning route to Cedar Ridge Elementary School on Thursday.
Angela Madrid, 34, and Jonathon Madrid, 10, were transported by ambulance to University Hospital with minor injuries, Sgt. Paul Reinsch of the Missouri State Highway Patrol said.
The accident occurred at 8:10 a.m. when the bus stopped to pick up more students on the 1-70 and U.S. 63 connector road.
At the time of the accident three students were on the bus and sitting near the front. The students and bus driver are fine, Columbia Public Schools spokeswoman Michelle Baumstark said.
The damage to the bus was minor. Madrid's car received extensive damage and was towed from the scene, Reinsch said.
The mother and student in the car were attempting to catch up with the bus when the accident occurred, Baumstark said.
Another bus picked up the students and took them to school.
