GIBSONTON — Crews responded Tuesday afternoon to a crash involving a Hillsborough County school bus and a car.
The crash happened about 3:45 p.m. at Big Bend Road and U.S. 41. Students were returning home from Lennard High School when it happened.
The eastbound lanes of Big Bend Road east of U.S. 41 were closed because of the crash, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said.
An emergency medical crew was on the bus about 4:15 p.m., said Stephen Hegarty, spokesman for the Hillsborough County school district. Three students said they were injured, although it was not clear how badly.
"One of them went home with the parents," Hegarty said. "We have no reason to believe it is anything life-threatening."
He did not know the extent of injuries to the driver of the car.
