The first accident was reported around 7:40 Wednesday morning on Lee Highway and Chantilly Road in Fairfax County. The bus was carrying children to school, one of whom sustained injuries. He was taken to a local hospital for observation, but was not in serious condition, according to Fairfax County sources.
At approximately 8:20 a.m., a second accident occurred when a Chrysler sedan rear-ended a school bus on Route 28 at Old Mill Road after New Braddock Road.
The bus was empty of passengers when the southbound-traveling sedan struck it, but the sedan's occupants and the bus driver were treated for minor injuries.
