A bus headed to Daniels Middle School tried to turn left from Lead Mine Road onto Valley Estates Drive and struck the side an oncoming Chevrolet Cavalier, pushing it into a ditch, according to the wreck report.
Both the car and bus had to be towed away. The students were taken on to Daniels Middle by another bus.
Police said the bus driver was at fault but won't be cited. Police said that's standard procedure for wrecks that cause only property damage and no injuries.
Chevrolet driver Anthony Robin said he was on his way to visit his wife who is in the intensive-care unit at Rex Hospital.
Robin, who was wearing a neck brace from recent surgery, said he was OK but was going to get checked out by a doctor as a precaution.
