(CEDAR CITY)-Per the St. George News’ official Twitter account, an Iron County school bus was involved in an accident on S.R. 56 Tuesday morning.

Iron County School District superintendent Shannon Dulaney confirmed that a bus headed for North Elementary School in Cedar City ran into the back of another bus between 8:00 and 9:00 a.m. MDT.

The elementary school was conducting health screenings Tuesday so there were numerous school nurses on hand who were able to check the children involved in the crash.

Reportedly, the majority of the children were “fine and uninjured,” although one boy sustained minor injuries and was transported to Cedar City’s Valley View Regional Medical Center.

The boy’s mother notified the school district her son will be fine, Dulaney reported, although he will not be returning to school Tuesday.

Concerning the drivers, Dulaney says she has received no information as to whether or not either one of them was injured.

The Iron County Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating the incident.
