A car that ran a flashing red light was hit broadside by a school bus this afternoon at Scottsville-Mumford and Wheatland Center Roads.


Monroe County Deputies say the bus was coming from Genesee Country Village, carrying 35 children back from a field trip. One passenger told 13 WHAM the bus driver hit the brakes hard, then came a bang and breaking glass.

Five of the kids were taken to the hospital with minor injuries. The driver of the car was seriously injured and is said to be in critical condition at Strong Memorial Hospital.


Both the First Student bus and the car ended up off the road -- the car spun into a utility pole.
