COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — District 11 officials say there were no serious injuries after a bus carrying 37 elementary school students was hit by another vehicle in downtown Colorado Springs Thursday afternoon.

The crash happened just before 3 p.m. at the intersection of Cimarron Street and Weber Street. District 11 spokeswoman Devra Ashby said the bus was taking students from Columbia Elementary School to an after-school program.

Ashby said some injuries were reported, but none of them are serious.

Three children have been transported to the hospital as a precautionary measure, officials said.

Police say it appears the other vehicle ran a red light when it hit the school bus.
