The Minnesota State Patrol says there were no injuries when a Crookston man struck a school bus at around 7:30 a.m. Tuesday.

According to East Grand Forks school superintendent David Pace, there were five kids on the bus, ranging from preschool-age to high school. No students were injured.

The crash happened on U.S. Highway 2, near mile marker 4.

The driver of a 2004 Hyundai Sonata, Jamie Lampi, 20, of Crookston, sideswiped the 1999 school bus driven by Jeffry Han, 53, of East Grand Forks.

The patrol says a witness said that Lampi was passing in an out of traffic and tried to pass the bus and get in front of it. The witness stated that Lampi didn't leave enough room for the maneuver and ran into the left side of the bus. Lampi's vehicle then went into the ditch.

The condition of the road was listed as dry, according to an accident report.

The children in the bus were brought to school on a different bus. Damage to the bus was minor.
