MEDFORD, Ore. — A student was injured and police shut down traffic for about an hour after a driver rear-ended a school bus on Vilas Road, according to the Medford Police Department (MPD).

Officers shut down the westbound lanes of traffic on Vilas after responding to the incident — and an ambulance was called in order to "check some people out," MPD said in a Facebook post.

MPD later updated their post to reflect that one child had been transported to the hospital for minor injuries, and the driver of the vehicle that struck the bus was cited for Careless Driving.
