A New Bedford Public School bus was involved in a minor accident this morning.

School spokesman Jon Carvalho tells WBSM News that Bus #55 for Normandin Middle School was involved in what sounded like a minor fender-bender in the area of Ashley Boulevard and Tarkiln Hill Road in the North End around 7:30 this morning. About twenty students were on board.

Carvalho says most of the middle school students had cell phones and were able to immediately notify their parents of the mishap.

Only a handful of students were taken to St. Luke's Hospital for evaluation. No injuries were reported.
