An SUV swiped a school bus in front of Casimir Pulaski Elementary School in Meriden Tuesday afternoon, and then drove away.
Children were on the bus at the time, according to police spokesman Det. Lt. Mark Walerysiak, but no injuries were reported.
Damage was slight, and police say the SUV driver may not know he or she even hit the bus, and are continuing to investigate.
Casimir Pulaski Prinicipal Tom Brown gave more information on the incident Tuesday evening. He said the car hit a retractable stop sign that was extended from the bus. The rest of the vehicle was not damaged, and the hit only hyperextended the sign.
Four children were on the bus at the time, Brown said, and the school phoned parents of those four and four others who were slated to ride bus 99 to tell them about the incident and possible delays.
This is the second fender-bender involving a Meriden school bus in the last week. Last Friday a turned in front of an SUV on Coe Ave. No one was hurt, but five children were taken to the hospital as a precaution. The bus driver was issued a warning for improper left turn.
