MONTGOMERY COUNTY (WSLS 10) - The children were not hurt, but the driver of another vehicle injured during a school bus accident in Montgomery County Friday.

It happened on Pepper's Ferry Road just outside Christiansburg around 1 p.m.

Witnesses said a driver rear-ended a car, which sent the car spinning into the front of a stopped school bus full of students. People at the scene said no students were hurt, but the driver of the first car was taken to the hospital.

The grandfather of one of the bus-riders said he saw and heard the whole thing and it wasn't the first accident he's witnessed at that intersection.

"I was afraid all of them was hurt. Some of them got off, but they said they didn't want to go to the doctor. But it's bad here," Billy Casto explained.

Traffic was slightly delayed on Pepper's Ferry Road during the cleanup.
