No injuries in Naples school bus crash

The 31 students on the bus were headed to Songo Locks Elementary School. They got to school safely after the crash.

NAPLES, Maine — No one was injured in an early morning school bus crash Monday in Naples.

The crash involving a bus and another vehicle took place as students were headed to Songo Locks Elementary School.

Amelia Harmon, 35, of Naples was waiting to turn left into Lake Region Convenience in a 2009 Subaru Outback, according to the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office. Her 4-year-old son and Joseph Begin, 38, also of Naples, were in the car.

Susan McMahon, 72, of Naples was driving an MSAD 61/Lake Region School District school bus carrying 31 children and struck the Subaru from behind. 

The collision caused the Subaru to enter the parking lot of Lake Region Convenience. The Subaru then hit a 2004 Chevy Trailblazer that was parked but unoccupied at the time. 

The Subaru also hit a propane rack in front of the store, which then caused what police said is "significant damage" to the front of the store. 

Police say everyone involved was evaluated shortly after the crash. There were no reported injuries.

The students on the bus got to school safely after the crash.

NEWS CENTER Maine spoke to MSAD 61 Superintendent Al Smith Monday morning. He said, "Everyone was fine and all the parents were notified. We're fortunate no one was hurt."

The cause of the crash is still under investigation. Police added speed and alcohol were not factors.
