On consecutive days late last week, Jessamine County school buses were involved in minor traffic accidents.
Last Thursday Chris Bellman, the director of transportation for the Jessamine County School District, said a car slid into a bus at South Main Street and U.S. 27 causing minor "cosmetic damage" to the bus.
According to a police report from the Nicholasville Police Department, the Jan. 11 accident occurred around 7:25 a.m. when the bus was stopped at a traffic light on South Main Street when Brian S. Robinson of Lancaster attempted to make a right turn onto South Main Street and lost control of his 1992 Chevrolet Lumina Euro, causing it to crash into the left front bumper of the bus.
The report says Robinson admitted to looking in his rear view mirror when the accident occurred.
On Friday, a minor accident caused slight body damage to another bus that had been in service for less than two weeks.
