Five students suffered minor injuries this morning when the driver of their school bus crashed into a farm tractor while trying to pass it, authorities said.
The collision happened at Runge and Hackman roads in Dixon at about 7:25 a.m., according to California Highway Patrol spokesperson Officer Chris Parker.
The driver of the small bus was driving east on Hackman and decided to pass the tractor, which had its hazard lights flashing due to it’s slow speed, Parker said. The tractor made a left turn and crashed into the bus, causing the bus to tip over.
The bus driver suffered moderate injuries and the students, ages 16 to 22, had minor injuries. Their names were not released.
No citations were issued pending the outcome of an investigation, Parker said.
