A sedan struck a school bus in Miles City on Wednesday morning, sending 7 people to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Matthew Zellers said the injured were taken to the hospital "mainly as a precaution."
At about 8:30 a.m., a sedan traveling on Sioux Avenue struck the bus, which had about 8 seats, as it was traveling on Box Elder Street through an uncontrolled intersection.
A press release from Miles City Fire and Rescue described the bus as a "special needs bus."
Zellers said that the driver of the sedan was issued a citation and warnings, but that speed and alcohol were not believed to be factors. Zellers said that he believed that the bus was not equipped with seat belts.
