Troopers from the Gladstone Post were called Thursday around 5:30 p.m. to US-2/41 near the Escanaba River Bridge.  They say the bus was headed to Carney with the Munising girls’ basketball team when it crested a hill and harsh sunlight obscured the tractor-trailer from the bus driver’s view.  The bus could not stop in time and rear-ended the tractor-trailer.

Officials say only one student sustained minor injuries and was treated by paramedics at the scene. 

The driver of the bus was cited for failure to yield.
