No students injured in two Hernando County school bus crashes


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.
