HILTONS, Va. (AP) — Virginia State Police say two students suffered minor injuries when a car rear-ended a school bus in Scott County.

State police spokeswoman Corinne Geller says the students were getting off the bus at a stop when the accident occurred Tuesday afternoon on Route 58 near Route 614.

Geller says the bus' side-arm stop sign and flashing lights were activated.

The car's driver, 18-year-old Star S. Shaffer of Hiltons, suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries. She was taken to a hospital.

The bus driver, 60-year-old Lee R. Sanders of Hiltons, and several other middle and high school students on the bus weren't injured.

The investigation is continuing.
