A Thursday morning crash involving a school bus and a Pontiac Bonneville resulted in no injuries but heavy damage to the car.The crash took place at around 8:35 a.m. at the intersection of South Harrison Street and West Packard Avenue, according to Officer Raquel Foster of the Fort Wayne Police Department.

Foster said that the initial investigation indicates that the Pontiac was westbound on Packard when the driver likely disregarded a stop sign at the intersection with South Harrison. The bus, which was traveling south on Harrison and carrying five students, one adult and the driver, then slammed into the passenger's side of the Pontiac.

The Pontiac's driver and an 8-year-old passenger were uninjured in the crash, and none of the passengers on the bus reported injuries, though Foster said that both drivers were shaken up after the incident.

Fort Wayne Community Schools spokeswoman Krista Stockman said in an e-mail that the district dispatched another bus to take the students to school after they were checked by emergency medical personnel at the scene.

Both the Pontiac and bus required towing.
