ND students unhurt in school bus accident

LARIMORE, N.D. — North Dakota's Highway Patrol says a school bus accident didn't cause any injuries.

The driver of the Larimore school bus has been charged with failing to yield the right of way. Kenneth Brunk has been put on leave while the school investigates the incident.

The patrol says the accident happened Wednesday when Brunk pulled in front of a pickup on U.S. Highway 2, two miles west of Larimore.

The pickup hit the right side of the bus. It was carrying nine Larimore students. They were not injured.

Brunk is 70 years old, but Larimore's school superintendent says his age wasn't a concern. The superintendent says Brunk has been a reliable driver for years.

No one in the pickup was injured. Its driver was ticketed for driving with a suspended license.
