A child on a school bus in Fresno that was hit by a car on Monday, Sept. 10, 2018 gives his description of what the collision was like.

A Fresno Unified school bus carrying elementary students was in a collision with a car near the Fig Garden Village Shopping Center in Fresno on Monday afternoon.

There were no apparent injuries.

The crash between the bus and a Chevy sedan at Shaw and Harrison avenues happened around 3:45 pm. The bus was damaged along its right side.

A parent said the bus was transporting students from Manchester Gate to their local neighborhood schools.

Jacob Romero, a fourth-grader, said he felt a big bump and heard the crash.

“It was a little bit scary, but it’s a good thing no one was hurt,” the 9-year-old said.

His father, Andrew, said his son sent him a photo of a nearby building that he recognized, so he drove over to pick him up.

A replacement bus arrived about 45 minutes later and the children were walked to the new bus.
