No children were hurt when a Highlands School District bus was involved in a crash on Freeport Road Wednesday afternoon, according to the district and Harrison police.

The crash happened around 3:15 p.m. near Montana Avenue, police Chief Mike Klein said.

Montana Avenue goes back to the district’s high school.

Information on the type and size of bus involved, and how many students were on board, was not immediately available.

According to a school district notice, a school nurse examined all of the students on the bus as a precaution.

Parents were notified directly, the district said.

According to Klein, a driver in a car tried to pass the bus, which was in motion, on Montana Avenue and the car clipped the side of the bus.

A representative of ABC Transit, the district’s transportation contractor, could not be reached for comment.

There was minor damage to the bus, Klein said.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
