A Currituck County school bus and a car collided on U.S. 158 Thursday afternoon, sending one man to the hospital with injuries.

Four children and a monitor were on the bus, and none were injured, said Sandy Kinzel, spokeswoman for Currituck County Schools.

The accident occurred at about 4:15 p.m. as the bus pulled out of South Spot Road to head south on U.S. 158, Kinzel said in an e-mail.

The front end of the car was wedged underneath the bus. WTKR television reported that an infant in the car was taken to a hospital as a precaution.

Parents of the students were called to the scene. The students were released after being cleared by EMTs.
