The story has been updated with information from USD 259 that there were five children on the bus.

WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — A school bus and a semi crashed in east Wichita Tuesday afternoon, but there does not appear to be much damage.

A spokesperson for Wichita Public Schools says the bus was carrying five children from Mayberry Middle School. There are no injuries.

The crash happened at Rock Road and Peachtree, just north of Kellogg and Rock Road, shortly before 3 p.m.

The bus was attempting to turn north on Rock from the stoplight at Kellogg. The school district spokesperson says the semi was in a turn lane but went straight instead. Because both vehicles were starting from a stopped position, the damage is minor.

The KSN photographer at the scene could only see a scuff on the side of the bus near a rear tire. He said it appeared to be a relatively new school bus.

The bus pulled over, which is protocol.
