"The good news was, no one was injured," said Calhoun School facilities director Donnie Pitts, following a van colliding into the rear of a Calhoun school bus yesterday evening.

About 40 students were on the late run activity bus.

The accident happened on Rt. 16 near Orma at the intersection of Wolf Run about 6:30 p.m.

"The bus was making a stop to let a student off," said Pitts, when it was struck from behind.

Most parents came to the accident scene to pick-up their children, said Pitts, with about eight children transfered to a bus sent to the scene to complete the run.

Pitts said the bus did not appear to be heavily damaged, although the engine is in the rear of the vehicle.

Calhoun EMS dispatched ambulances to the scene, but the run was discontinued before they arrived. The Upper West Fork VFD responded for traffic control.

The Calhoun Sheriff's Department and State Police responded to the incident.
