A Honda is wrecked after a Hillsborough school bus crashed into it Monday in Seffner. Three people were taken to hospitals.

SEFFNER — Three people were taken to area hospitals Monday morning after a Hills­borough County school bus crashed into the back of a car stopped at a red light.

None of the injuries was life-threatening.

A Florida Highway Patrol trooper on the scene said the crash was the fault of bus driver Sharon Jackson, 57.

Jackson has been driving a bus for Hillsborough County since 1979 and has no prior accidents, according to school district spokeswoman Linda Cobbe.

Jackson had dropped students off at Mann Middle School shortly before the 9 a.m. crash.

No students were on the bus at the time of the incident.

FHP reports said the bus driver was heading west on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard when she struck the back of a Honda stopped at a light at Highview Road.

Gloria Crosby, an adult attendant to special needs students, was on the bus and was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital with chest and neck pain. She was treated and released.

The driver and a passenger in the Honda were taken to Brandon Regional Hospital. FHP officials on duty Monday would not release their names.

Jackson's Florida driving record shows she was cited three times for speeding in the 1990s and once for an expired tag. Adjudication was withheld in the speeding cases, and no points were issued against her license for the expired tag.

Researcher John Martin contributed to this report. Jan Wesner can be reached at jwesner@sptimes.com or (813) 661-2439.
