A collision involving a Farmington school bus and a compact car caused

considerable damage but no injuries Friday afternoon.

The accident occurred shortly after 3 p.m. at the intersection of Highway 52 and 200th Street in Vermillion Township. The school bus had just dropped off its last student on the west side of Highway 52 and was turning around to pick up students at Farmington Elementary School when it was hit by a compact-type car heading southbound on the highway.


There were no students on the bus and no passengers in the vehicle.

The school bus sustained damage to the side but was still drivable.

The car, however, was totaled.

Marshall Lines manager Tom Severson said another bus was dispatched immediately to pick up the FES students. The driver will be suspended until an investigation into the accident has been completed, according to company policy.

"The biggest thing with any accident, we're just thankful that nobody was injured and that the bus was empty," Severson said.
