CORVALLIS (AP) — The Montana Highway Patrol says a pickup truck rear-ended a school bus west of Corvallis, injuring the pickup driver and six children.
The Ravalli Republic reports the children were not seriously injured.
The patrol says the bus had stopped to pick up a student at about 8 a.m. Monday when the pickup truck collided with the back of the bus.
Trooper Chris Hamilton says the bus had its flashing lights on and its stop sign out, but the pickup driver apparently didn't see the bus because of the sun's glare on his windshield.
The driver of the pickup suffered broken ribs and was cited for careless driving.
Three children were taken to the hospital by ambulance while three others were taken their by their parents. Hamilton says the children suffered no real injuries other than being stiff and sore.
