Five occupants of a Sussex Central High School bus suffered minor injuries Nov. 29 following a school bus crash on Harbeson Road.

The crash happened at 3:11 p.m. north of Johnson Road when a Maryland man driving an SUV failed to remain stopped on Hurdle Ditch Road and pulled into the path of a school bus traveling southbound on Harbeson Road, said Master Cpl. Melissa Jaffe of the Delaware State Police.

The bus, carrying 20 students and an aide, ran off the roadway and into a ditch, she said. Four students and the aide were taken to an area hospital with minor injuries, Jaffe said.

The SUV driver, 26, was ticketed with failure to remain stopped.
