At least two people have been injured in a three-vehicle accident involving a Hamilton County school bus on Dayton Boulevard this afternoon.

The driver of one of the cars involved has been charged with DUI, Red Bank Police officials confirmed.

No students were hurt in the rear-end collision, which occurred about three blocks south of Red Bank City Hall around 2:30 p.m., Red Bank Police Chief Tim Christol said.

Christol said the school bus was pulling to a stop to let students off when a Jeep hit the back of a van, which then rammed the back of the bus.

Two people in the van have been transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Christol said.
