Reading school bus crash

READING, Pa. - Police say a SUV crashed into a school bus in Reading Thursday morning, sending one person to the hospital.

It happened around 11:30 a.m. in the 1300 block of North 10th Street.

Police on scene say the bus was stopped at the time of the crash and did not have its red lights on.
