HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) – Police are investigating a school bus accident in Henrico’s West End. The accident was reported about 7:50 a.m. at the intersection of Province Dr. and Pavilion Dr. near Pemberton and Quioccasin Rds.

The school bus was damaged when it hit a sign pole. No students on the bus were injured, according to police.

“Students were headed to Ridge Elementary, and they’re there safely now. Looks like the only significant damage was a couple of cracked windows,” Henrico Schools spokesman Andy Jenks wrote in an email.

Jenks said he was told the bus hit a street sign as it made a turn.

Another bus was dispatched to pick up the students and take them to class.
