Minnehaha County authorities say a Brandon Valley school bus crashed into a pickup truck Wednesday afternoon.
The accident happened near Interstate 90 and Cliff Avenue at about 4:40 p.m.
The sheriff's department says the bus driver was traveling south on North 10th Avenue and yielded at an intersection, but didn't see the pickup truck coming, and the two vehicles collided.
Sheriff's officials say there were 14 kids on the bus. None of them were injured.
"You feel pretty lucky that you've got kids involved that aren't injured. They're on the school bus and it sounded like it was just a deal where the bus driver wasn't able to, for whatever reason, see the vehicle that was travelling eastbound," Sgt. Preston Evans with the Minnehaha County Sheriff's Department said.
The driver of the pickup also escaped without injury. His truck wasn't so lucky. It ended up on its side and has major damage.
