      Car strikes bus near LaHarpe

      Twelve students escaped injury in an early-morning crash involving a school bus in Hancock County.

      The crash happened about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday at a railroad crossing near Webster Road and Hancock County Road 2400N.

      The LaHarpe School District bus was stopped at the crossing when it was struck in the rear by a car.

      Bus driver Donna Nell, 50, and the car's driver, Travis Sanderson, 28, were not injured.

      The crash was attributed to the snow-covered roads.

      Sanderson was cited with failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident.
