RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — A Chesterfield County school bus was involved in a crash with another vehicle in Richmond Monday morning.

Richmond Police tells 8News that around 8 a.m., officers were called to the intersection of Walmsley and Broad Rock Boulevards for a collision between a Chevrolet Cavalier and a Chesterfield school bus.

Officers arrived and closed the intersection for a brief time to investigate. Chesterfield Schools say the bus driver and her own two children were on board the bus at the time of the accident. Neither of the children or the bus driver was injured.

The bus had dropped off students at Falling Creek Elementary School just before the crash occurred, according to Chesterfield Schools.

The driver of the Sedan was taken to a local hospital to be medically evaluated and was charged with Reckless Driving.

The intersection has since been reopened.
