TUPELO – A Tupelo Public School District bus swiped the back bumper of a truck on Wednesday afternoon while on the way to pick up students.
No students were on board the bus at the time of the accident. It was on its way to Lawhon Elementary to pick up students, said Julie Hinds, TPSD Executive Director of Operations.
The Tupelo Police Department said it was a minor swipe with no injuries, and the bus and vehicle both remained operational.
The bus was turning from Jackson onto Front Street and slid while stopping, Hinds said. She said the bus was able to continue its route.
