No children were seriously injured, but the driver of an SUV that was rear-ended by a school bus on East Stephen Foster Avenue Tuesday afternoon was taken by ambulance to Flaget Memorial Hospital.

Sgt. Andrew Riley of the Bardstown Police would only give her last name as Payton, and said she was from Bardstown. The last name of the driver of the Bardstown Independent Schools bus was Brock.

Riley said Payton had stopped for a traffic light when the bus hit her from behind.

Nelson County EMS and Bardstown Fire also responded to the incident near Court Square, which occurred before 3 p.m. and tied up traffic for a while.

While police and first responders were working the accident, parents came and got some of the children off the bus.
