RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Some Hanover students will be on alert a day after a head-on collision involving a school bus. It happened about 7:30am Monday on Mountain Road.

The bus was reportedly picking up a child when a man driving a pickup truck veered from his lane into the bus. The truck had been slowing down to avoid hitting other traffic so the impact was minimal.

The driver was ticketed. The bus driver was taken to the hospital as a precaution. No one else was hurt.

That school bus had nearly a dozen children on board.
