TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Two accidents happened Tuesday in downtown Tallahassee.

The first involved a work van that ran a red light and hit a Gadsden County school bus on its way to pick up students from the Challenger Learning Center.

Tallahassee Police say no kids were on the bus at the time of the accident and no one was injured.

Hours later a hit-and-run crash involved a Leon County school bus.

The Tallahassee Police Department says the crash happened around 3 p.m. Tuesday at Gaines and Bronough streets.

Tallahassee Police say a driver hit the school bus and drove off.

Leon county school officials say the bus driver was taken to the hospital but the two children on-board are okay.
