Elementary- and middle-school children on a Wake County school bus were unhurt Thursday morning when the bus was involved in a crash with two other vehicles, Wake Forest officials said.
Later, elementary-school students escaped injury in a crash in Raleigh.
The bus in Wake Forest, which officials said was carrying 27 students, was bound for Heritage Elementary and Heritage Middle schools, town spokesman Bill Crabtree said.
Later in the morning, a bus taking 37 students to Bugg Elementary School at 825 Cooper Road was involved in an accident at Poole and Williams roads, school officials and police said.
The Wake Forest crash happened at Rogers Road and Farm Street. The schools are at 3500 Rogers Road, a little over a mile from the crash scene.
Crabtree said people in the other vehicles reported minor injuries.
Police investigators were determining how the crash happened.
A second school bus picked up the students and took them to their schools, Crabtree said.
