SURGOINSVILLE — The driver of a van that collided head on with a Hawkins County school bus Monday afternoon suffered minor injuries, but the bus driver and two students on board were not hurt.

The accident was reported to Hawkins County Central Dispatch at 3:53 p.m. after a Chrysler Town and Country van reportedly struck an oncoming school bus head-on on a very narrow, winding section of Caldwell Road south of Surgoinsville.

Although it was initially dispatched out to emergency responders with multiple injuries, Tennessee Highway Patrol Trooper Josh Mabe said he was glad to find upon his arrival that the wreck was “fairly minor.”
