LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Emergency crews were on the scene of an injury accident between a school bus and an SUV Monday afternoon, according to MetroSafe.

A Miller Transportation bus that had just left Portland Christian School at 8509 Westport Road collided with the SUV just after 3:30 p.m. at Westport Road and Herr Lane. A MetroSafe dispatcher said the only injury was to a person in the SUV. The extent of the person's injuries was not immediately known.

About 36 students – many of them middle and high school students – were aboard the bus, according to Jodell Seay, Executive Director of Portland Christian School.

Seay said she had spoken with the bus driver and the bus monitor. The students were waiting for a replacement bus so they could continue to the school's Portland campus.
