A First Student bus transporting children to Irving Elementary was involved in an accident this morning.
One child was complaining of a sore neck and her guardians will have her examined by a physician, although EMTs on the scene did not believe it was serious. The four other students on board at the time reported no problems, and their parents have been contacted. The bus driver was taken to the hospital with unknown injuries.
Another bus brought the kids to Irving and authorities are investigating the accident, which took place at the corner of Irvington and Prairie Road.
