The driver of a Harford County Public School System bus was taken to Upper Chesapeake with minor injuries Tuesday morning after her bus—which was empty—was rear-ended by a driver on MD Route 924 at Ring Factory Road, according to The Aegis.

The Harford County Sheriff's Office told The Aegis  that no charges would be filed in the crash between the school bus and Mercedes SUV, whose driver mistakenly thought the bus was moving after both had been stopped at a traffic light around 8:50 a.m.

To avoid fender benders, Selective Insurance recommends that drivers look at traffic eight to 10 seconds, or one-third mile, ahead of them on the road to increase their situational awareness.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the most serious crashes involving school buses occur between 7 and 9 a.m. and 3 to 4 p.m.
