BOWNE TOWNSHIP—A driver was injured when his car rolled over while avoiding a bus full of children shortly after noon Friday.
At 12;20 p.m. Friday, the Kent County Sheriff's Department received a 9-1-1 call reporting a rollover personal injury accident at the intersection of Alden Nash Avenue SE and 84th Street SE in Bowne Township near Alto. Upon arriving deputies found a two-vehicle accident with a Saturn SC2 driven by a 38-year-old Caledonia man rolled over in a ditch. The second vehicle was a 2006 Chevrolet day care bus driven by a 23-year-old Cutlerville woman who was transporting 10 children back to a day care center after a field trip.
The Saturn's driver suffered non-life-threatening injuries while the bus' driver and 10 children all were uninjured.
Deputies said both drivers were wearing seat belts and that alcohol was not a factor in the crash.
