MINNEOTA - A Dawson-Boyd school bus carrying 15 students was involved in a crash Saturday morning, but there were no injuries, local authorities said this weekend.

A two-vehicle crash involving the bus, which was transporting members of the Dawson-Boyd C-squad volleyball team to Minneota High School, was reported at 8:39 a.m. Saturday at the intersection of Jefferson and 4th streets in Minneota, the Minnesota State Patrol said.

A report by the State Patrol said the school bus, driven by George L. Vick, 61, of Dawson, was eastbound on 4th Street and failed to yield at the intersection when it was struck by a northbound Ford pickup driven by Donald D. Sanow, 75, of Minneota.
