A school bus on its way to Elkridge Elementary Thursday morning clipped a car at the intersection of Main Street and Levering Avenue around 8:55 a.m., according to Diane Mumford, the school's principal.

Mumford wrote in a letter to parents that the 12 students on bus 497 were not injured. The assistant principal, Tony Esposito, went to the scene to make sure the students were safe and warm as police worked to document the accident, according to Mumford.

After the officer completed a report, the students were taken to school on the same bus while another bus was sent to complete bus 497's route, Mumford wrote.

"All our honeybuns are safe," wrote Mumford. "Thank Goodness!"
