Dogwood Elementary Bus Involved in Collision

Two students on a school bus and the driver of a car were transported to Reston Hospital Center after the car collided with a Fairfax County Public Schools bus on Thursday morning.

The bus was carrying students heading to Dogwood Elementary School when it was rear-ended on South Lakes Court near Escalante Court shortly after 8 a.m., said Fairfax County Police public information officer Don Gotthardt.

The driver of the sedan was traken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries, Gotthardt said. Two students were also taken as a precaution, but did not have obvious injuries, he said.

The accident was cleared by 9:45 a.m. and another school bus delivered the rest of the students to school.
