Police: Off-duty officer sideswiped bus

NORWICH, Conn. (AP) — Norwich police say nine children suffered minor injuries when a Jeep driven by an off-duty city police officer collided with a school bus.

Police say the Jeep driven by Daniel Collins of Colchester crossed the double-yellow line on Asylum Street Thursday morning and sideswiped the bus, which was carrying 25 students.

The nine injured students all were taken to a local hospital, where they were treated and released.

No charges were filed Thursday.

Police say they are investigating and believe sun glare may have been a contributing factor in the accident.

The bus was heading north, the Jeep was southbound.
