There were no injuries Monday after a vehicle backed into a Blair Oaks R-2 School District school bus, Superintendent Jim Jones reported.

The incident happened at about 3:20 p.m., Jones said

A D&K Bus Service bus was driving on Friendship Road when, at Pebble Creek Drive in Wardsville, a truck that had pulled into a private gravel driveway and was backing up to turn around hit the side of the bus.

"It didn't disable the bus or anything like that," Jones said.

Most of the 16 students aboard — 13 from Blair Oaks and three from St. Stanislaus School — were elementary-aged, but there were K-12 students aboard, Jones said.

The students were transferred to another bus, and Jones said at about 4:30 p.m. that all students were home.
