NISKAYUNA - A school bus taking children home from Birchwood Elementary School in Niskayuna Wednesday afternoon was involved in an accident with a car, school officials said.

No injuries were reported by the district and all students on the bus were checked by a nurse and cleared to continue home, the district wrote on its website.

The crash involved Birchwood Bus #63 and happened at Route 7 and Niskayuna Road, the district said.

Birchwood's principal and school nurse responded tot he scene, as did Niskayuna police, the district said.

The district transportation department sent another bus to the scene to take students the rest of the way home, once the students were cleared to do so, the district said.

The district updated their posting just before 3:30 p.m. to indicate that the students had been checked and were on their way home.

"We know this was a concerning situation and thank you for your patience and the students for their cooperation this afternoon," the district wrote.
