BARBOURSVILLE — A tractor-trailer crashed into a Cabell County school bus Wednesday morning, according to Cabell County 911 supervisors.

The collision happened around 7:30 a.m. at the intersection of W.Va. 2 and Big Ben Bowen Highway, also known as the Merritt’s Creek connector.

The school bus was headed northbound through a light when a tractor-trailer hauling concrete attempted to turn and hit the school bus.

No injuries were reported by deputies and the 20 students on the bus were transferred to another bus and taken to school, according to a spokesperson for Cabell County Schools.
