No injuries occurred when a driver pulled out from a stop sign and collided with a school bus Thursday morning.

The accident was at the corner of Boone and Ninth Streets, a busy intersection during school mornings with its proximity to Miller Middle School.

"It was just a fender bender," said Don Meyer, transportation director with Marshalltown schools. "We moved the students to a different bus and nobody was hurt."

A Marshalltown Police officer talks with a school bus driver on Boone Street Thursday morning. The bus was involved in a minor accident with another vehicle.

Meyer said there was minor damage to the front bumper of the bus after it collided with a pickup truck. He said many of the roads in the Miller Middle School area are narrow and can get congested during the morning rush.

"Ninth and Boone is not a good intersection," Meyer said.
