One child suffered a minor injury after a school bus carrying middle school students hit a tree that came down in Wallingford, drove over it and got stuck.
Police said there were heavy rains and strong winds as a Durham school bus was traveling east on Laurelwood Drive and a tree fell directly in front of it, causing the bus to strike it around 7:21 a.m.
Twenty students were on the bus and the Wallingford Fire Department transported one student who received a very minor injury to Midstate Medical Center in Meriden by for evaluation.
Another bus brought the children to school because the bus, which has front end and undercarriage damage, was inoperable.
A wrecker removed the bus from the scene and crews from the Department of Public Works responded and cut up the tree.
