A school bus with twenty students on board was involved a minor traffic accident Friday afternoon on Student's Home Road near Magness Road.

No one was injured.

Central dispatch was notified at 3:38 p.m.

Trooper Bobby Johnson of the Tennessee Highway Patrol told WJLE that Faye Pollard, driving bus #08-25, was traveling south on Student's Home Road as 45 year old Jose Tierranegra was going north on a John Deere tractor with a nursery tree digger attachment. According to Trooper Johnson the tractor and bus sideswiped on the narrow road as both vehicles were trying to negotiate a curve. Tierranegra works for the BFN Operations nursery company.

The bus was only dented at the point of impact. While the bus was still driveable, students were loaded onto another bus and taken home.

Director of Schools Mark Willoughby, Transportation Supervisor Jimmy Sprague, and Attendance Supervisor Joey Reeder were on the scene along with a sheriff's deputy.
