Halifax District RCMP is investigating after a school bus was rear-ended in​ Hammonds Plains yesterday morning.

At 7:30 a.m. on April 8, Halifax District RCMP was dispatched to a two-vehicle collision involving a school bus and a Jeep Cherokee on St. George Blvd. in Hammonds Plains.​

A preliminary investigation revealed that the​ bus was stopped at a designated​ school bus stop with its lights and stop sign activated. The Jeep, which​ was travelling behind the bus, did not stop in time and collided with the rear of the bus. One bus driver and twenty-one children were aboard the bus at the time. No one was injured in either vehicle.

The driver of the Jeep was issued a Summary Offence Ticket.
