STARKE, Fla. - There were two minor injuries when a Bradford County school bus with no children on board was struck by a tractor-trailer just after 8 a.m. Tuesday morning just west of Starke.
According to the Bradford County Sheriff's Office, the bus was heading west on State Road 100 and was slowing to turn left onto S.W. 75th Avenue when it was struck by the big rig that was trying to pass the bus. The bus was pushed into a ditch and overturned, with the tractor-trailer coming to rest leaning against the bus.
Both drivers were taken to Shands Starke Regional Medical Center with minor injuries.
There was a minor diesel fuel spill and deputies say the intersection is likely to remain closed for much of the morning while the vehicles are cleared.
The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating the accident and said charges are pending.
