Two Hernando County school buses were involved in separate crashes Thursday but no one was injured. One accident took place just after 7 a.m. at Shoal Line Boulevard and Waverly Road in Weeki Wachee. Deputies said the bus with 14 Central High students aboard was at a stop sign when a car struck it from behind, going under the bumper, according to a report. The motorist was not identified. Later in the day, the driver of a Buick pulled out of a business near Jefferson Street and Ponce De Leon Boulevard, striking the front left side of a bus carrying about 30 students from Hernando High School. No one was injured, and the bus continued its route, school transportation coordinator Linda Smith said.
