RALEIGH — A school bus and a car crashed shortly before 8 a.m. Thursday morning in the 400 block of West Peace Street, sending a woman from the car and a student from the bus to WakeMed Hospital and closing the street for a time.
The driver of the car, who was not immediately identified, was believed to have serious injuries, police spokesman Jim Sughrue said.
The student was taken to the hospital as a precaution after complaining of a possible injury.

A bus was taking the eight remaining students to the school at about 9:30, she said.
Emergency personnel received the crash report at 7:48 a.m., Sughrue said.
