School bus and car collide near train tracks in New Bern

School bus and car collide near train tracks in New Bern (Merrilee Moore, NewsChannel 12)

A driver collided with the back of a school bus Wednesday morning in New Bern.

The school bus driver had stopped at the train tracks on South Glenburnie Road, which is required even if there is no train coming.

As the driver was looking both ways to cross the tracks, another driver in a black compact car did not slow down and crashed into the bus from behind, according to the New Bern Police Department.

The bus driver was the only person on the bus and no students were harmed. The crash caused minor traffic backups but the scene was clear by 8:15 a.m.

The condition of the other driver is unknown at this time. An ambulance was on scene.
