Clovis Police Officers say the bus was rear-ended at Minnewawa and San Jose. Paramedics loaded one of the nine children onto an ambulance, but they treated the other eight on the scene.

Police say an SUV tried to pass the bus, right as the bus driver was turning into the daycare driveway. The SUV hit the bus -- sending it into oncoming traffic where it hit a car driven by an elderly woman. She's okay, but a grandmother got hurt trying to check on a child at the daycare.

Police say they'll probably ticket the SUV driver who started the accident. The daycare is looking into why the seats on its bus came loose on impact.
