No children injured in two crashes involving Hillsborough school buses

TAMPA — Troopers are dealing with two separate crashes involving school buses in Hillsborough County on Thursday afternoon.

Traffic was slowing on southbound Interstate 75 north of State Road 60 as troopers investigated a crash between a bus and another vehicle in the right lane.

A vehicle in front of the school bus slowed for traffic and the bus collided with the vehicle's right rear bumper, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

No children on Bus 4830 were injured in the crash, which happened around 4 p.m., said Sgt. Larry Kraus, a patrol spokesman.

There were 13 magnet school students aboard, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said.

Troopers were also looking into a crash involving a school bus at Causeway Boulevard and Falkenburg Road in Brandon.

No injuries were reported and details were not yet unavailable.
