Fortunately no children were hurt in a school bus accident on Peggy’s Cove Road Wednesday afternoon.


The school bus stopped and activated its lights at 2:20 p.m. to let students off. A pickup truck stopped behind it, but it appears the third vehicle in line didn’t stop. The pickup truck was rear-ended, forcing the truck into the bus.


There were six students – between five- and six-years-old – on the bus at the time as well as the driver. They were all examined by paramedics at the scene, but no injuries were reported.


RCMP officers are investigating.
