A charter school bus carrying 25 children was rear-ended by a car Monday afternoon in the city's Port Richmond section, but no students were hurt, officials said.
The bus was transporting students from Maritime Academy Charter School when it was hit by a car about 4 p.m. in the 4100 block of Richmond Street, said School District spokeswoman Deirdre Darragh.
The occupants of the car were initially reported with minor injuries but refused to be treated. Another bus took the children home. The accident is under investigation. - Robert Moran
