BERWICK, Maine — No one was seriously injured in a frightening collision between a school bus and a car early Tuesday morning.

At 7:42 a.m. Tuesday, a Pontiac Grand Prix careened into the back of a stopped school bus on Route 236. The front of the car was lodged under the bus, stopping at the windshield.

MSAD 60 Superintendent Steven B. Connolly wrote in an update on the district website that Bus 48 had picked up its first two students of the morning and was struck from behind by a driver who had been blinded by the sun.

Connolly wrote the students were uninjured and went to school after another bus was dispatched to continue the route.

The bus driver was transported for evaluation and the operator of the car was treated and released at the scene.

Berwick police, fire and American Ambulance personnel responded to the crash.
