— A Wake County school bus collided Tuesday afternoon with a bicycle in Fuquay-Varina, Wake Schools spokesman Greg Thomas said.

There were no children on the bus when the wreck happened at 3 p.m. at the corner of Stewart Street and Ransdell Road.

The rider of the bike was taken to Western Wake Medical Center with injuries that EMS said were not life-threatening.

The driver of the school bus, Willie C. Harris, was not charged Tuesday.  However, it does appear that Harris failed to yield the right of way to the cyclist, Thomas said.
