FAIRBANKS - The driver of a school bus was issued a speeding citation after a traffic accident that demolished a car south of Fairbanks, Alaska State Troopers said.
Jim White, 50, was traveling east on the Old Richardson Highway on Monday and attempted to stop as the bus approached an intersection. He could not stop and drove through the intersection, blocking the path of a minivan driven by 49-year-old Claudia Binkley, troopers said.
Binkley's minivan struck the bus. She and three children inside were transported to Fairbanks Memorial Hospital for treatment. Two other children in Binkley's vehicle were not injured.
Several children on the bus reported minor injuries.
