Posted March 21, 2023 at 12:13 pm

A minor accident early Tuesday morning involving a Clinton County School bus and a private passenger car resulted in no injuries to either driver or any of the students on the bus, according to Clinton County Sheriff Ricky Marcum.

Marcum was still preparing the accident report when the NEWS contacted him shortly after the accident Tuesday morning, and he was unable to give personal information regarding the drivers at that time, but he did summarize what had occurred regarding the accident, which occurred at the intersection of U.S. 127 and Ky. 90, near the Junction Station business.

Marcum noted that the school bus attempting to make a left turn onto U.S. 127 when a passenger vehicle traveling east on Ky. 90 collided with the bus.
