GADSDEN COUNTY, FL (WTXL) -- A school bus was in a minor accident Monday just before 7:30 a.m. in Gadsden County, said the Florida Highway Patrol. There were 7 students on the bus at the time of the accident and none of them were injured.

33-year-old Kent Pridemore was stopped in traffic on US 90 just west of the Little River Bridge when the 66-year-old school bus driver crashed into the back of his SUV, said highway patrol officers.

Alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the accident, according to the arrest report. The highway patrol listed careless driving by the bus driver, Willie Moore as a cuase for the accident.

Pridemore was taken to the hospital for minor injuries.
