CHESTERFIELD, Va. (WWBT) - Two Chesterfield school buses were involved in separate crashes Tuesday.

Tuesday morning a bus with students on board was struck in the rear by a sedan on Bailey Bridge Road. None of the students on board the bus were injured, but the driver of the sedan had non-life-threatening injuries.

The bus driver was issued a summons for failure to yield while making a left turn.

Tuesday afternoon, a bus without students on board struck two vehicles on Iron Bridge Road. The bus was approaching the intersection with Deerfield Drive when a vehicle in front of it quickly came to a stop. The bus veered to the right to avoid hitting the vehicle, striking a sedan that stopped in front of it and striking a minivan that was waiting to turn from Deerfield Drive onto Iron Bridge Road. The bus then swerved back to the left and struck a street sign, coming to rest in the lane for oncoming traffic.

No one was injured and the driver of the bus was charged with reckless driving.
