CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – A crash was reported Monday around 2:50 p.m. at the intersection of Peachers Mill Rd. and Tiny Town Rd. involving two school buses.

According to Officer Natalie Hall with the Clarksville Police Department, one Clarksville-Montgomery County school bus rear-ended another at the intersection. Both buses were headed northbound on Peachers Mill Rd.

Police say there were a few minor injuries and some passengers were transported to a medical facility. The number of passengers transported has not yet been confirmed.

Bus-9723, driven by Erika Gaines, 34, ran into the back of bus 09-13, driven by Charity Gross, 39, at the traffic light.

Gaines was cited for following too close.
