INDIANAPOLIS—Police say the driver of a school bus and the person behind the wheel of a car that hit it will be ticketed, following on accident on the Indianapolis west side, Wednesday afternoon.

According to a spokesperson for the Indianapolis Public Schools, about 25 students from Arsenal Tech High School were aboard the bus when it was hit by a car at West 10th Street and North Traub Avenue. That's a few blocks west of the White River.

There were no injuries and a second bus was dispatched to the scene to get the students home.
