Eastmont school bus hits Mustang

— Six Eastmont School District students needed to catch a ride home on a different school bus after the one they were riding in hit a Mustang on Tuesday.

Nobody was injured in the crash.

According to Douglas County Sheriff Harvey Gjesdal, the crash occurred at 3:05 p.m. at the intersection of Badger Mountain Road and Canyon Hills Drive.

"The investigation revealed that an Eastmont School district bus was preparing to make a left turn onto Badger Mountain Road," the sheriff said. "The driver did not see a W/B mustang which was approaching the intersection."

The bus driver started the turn and slammed into the driver-side door of the sports car, the sheriff said.

There were six students aboard the bus, but none were injured, he said. The district sent a second bus to transport them home.

Following the investigation, the Mustang was towed from the scene.

The names of the drivers and students were not immediately available.
