Two people are being treated for injuries after a school bus and a vehicle collided in northeast Charlotte during Tuesday morning's commute.

According to Charlotte firefighters, the crash happened along W.T. Harris Boulevard around the Dunstaff Road intersection around before 8:54 a.m.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg School officials say bus #391 was en route to Ridge Road Middle School with five students on board when the crash happened. None of the students were injured.

CMS officials say the bus driver is one of the people being transported to the hospital.

Medic says both injured people were being taken to Carolinas Medical Center-University with minor injuries.

Photos from the scene, sent my viewer Matt Rowell, show the school bus off the side of the road, with the front end in a patch of woods.

The emergency door in the back of the bus was open.
