A Central Valley School District bus was hit by a car Wednesday, sending five students to the hospital with minor injuries.
The bus was carrying 63 Broadway Elementary School students when it stopped at a red light at the intersection of Broadway Avenue and Bowdish Road about 3:25 p.m.
Two cars – one northbound and the other southbound on Bowdish – collided in the intersection. One vehicle was pushed into the bus.
The five students and the bus driver were transported to the hospital as a precaution, said Melanie Rose, CVSD spokeswoman.
The Spokane County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the crash.
