Police report no injuries in accident on Buffalo Street, just east of Pearl Street
A Canandaigua City School bus was stuck by a pickup truck at 2:40 p.m. Monday on Buffalo Street, just east of Pearl Street.
Canandaigua City Police Chief Stephen Hedworth said the bus was stopping to let students off and had its yellow lights flashing, but the red lights had not yet come on when a pickup truck driven by Robert Perrin, 33, of Canandaigua, smashed into the back of the bus.
There were no injuries reported.
School District Superintendent Jamie Farr said there were nine middle and high school students on the bus at the time. Each was individually checked out by paramedics at the scene.
He said calls were made to individual homes and the students were all taken home.
"It was more a precaution," Farr said, noting any time there is an accident involving a school bus, school nurses or paramedics are sent to the scene. In this case, both went.
Hedworth said students were transferred to another school bus to complete the route.
Perrin was cited for following too closely and will answer the charge in City Court at a later date. His vehicle was towed from the scene.
Hedworth said there was no damage to the bus.
