A student and two adults on a school bus were hurt following a crash in West Hartford.

It happened Monday morning on North Main Street and Sheep Hill Drive, which is near Northwest Catholic High School.

Five students and two adults were on board the bus at the time, according to police. They were heading to the Norfeldt School.

Police said another vehicle, driven by 47-year-old Verona Jones of Bloomfield, was heading south on North Main Street when the driver lost control, crossed the yellow lines and hit the bus.

Jones was issued an infraction for traveling too fast for conditions.

Emergency crews evaluated people at the scene.

Police said one student suffered a bloody nose and one of the adults suffered another minor injury. Neither was hospitalized. The bus driver, identified as 56-year-old Jacqueline Harris-Cousins of Bloomfield, suffered minor injuries as well, but was transported to Hartford Hospital.

The bus is owned by the First Student company.

Overall, however, officers called the crash minor.

Investigators said road conditions were slippery at the time of the crash.

There's no word on what caused the crash.
