A school bus carrying one child was involved in a crash earlier this morning at Clarcona Ocoee Road and Whispering Birch Way. The crash temporarily blocked oncoming traffic from both directions.

The crash happened when a utility type work truck rear-ended the school bus.

"A vehicle struck a school bus from behind that was stopped," said Ocoee Police Sgt. Brian Satterlee. "The bus had one child that was transported to the hospital with minor injuries. The driver of the vehicle that struck the bus was injured and airlifted to (Orlando Regional Medical Center)."
