Medic treated one patient for minor injuries Tuesday after a wreck involving a Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools bus and a car on Providence Road West at Tolliver Drive. The patient was taken to Carolinas HealthCare System Pineville, Medic reported.

Medic does not release names or ages of patients it treats.

Thirty students from nearby Community House Middle School were aboard the bus, CMS officials told WBTV, the Observer’s news partner.

The wreck happened at about 5 p.m. east of Johnston Road and south of Ballantyne.

The front of the car was mangled, aerial footage from TV station helicopters showed. The bus appeared to be off the side of the road. A large crowd was at the scene, including children.

No details of the wreck were available from police.
