POWELL, Wyo. (AP) — A Wyoming school bus driver was involved in two separate crashes with pickup trucks in one day.

The Powell Tribune reports the second of the two crashes, which happened on Monday around Powell, resulted in an injury to a bus aide. No students were injured in either incident.

The first crash took place around 7:30 a.m. In that incident, Park County School District No. 1 officials say the bus driver didn’t see an approaching truck and failed to yield. Fourteen students had been riding on the bus.

The second crash, involving the same bus and driver, occurred around 4 p.m., just 1 mile north of the morning incident. Two students were on board at the time.

Park County School District No. 1 Superintendent Jay Curtis says a female bus aide suffered a bump to the head and was taken to Powell Valley Hospital.
