One Manatee school bus sideswiped another, no injuries reported

MANATEE - One school bus sideswiped another that was unloading elementary students at Sea Breeze Elementary School Tuesday afternoon but no one was injured, Florida Highway Patrol troopers said.

Both buses were in the eastbound bus lane at the school at 3601 71st St. W. when the driver of the second bus attempted to drive around the left side of the bus in front. The driver said school personnel had waved for her to pass. As the bus moved forward, the right side collided with the left rear corner of the bus in front, troopers said.

About 66 elementary students were passengers on the bus in front at the time.
