School bus wreck hurts five

Five Meadowbrook Ele­men­tary pupils were taken to an area hospital for observation Thursday after a vehicle ran into the side of a school bus.

The driver of the vehicle told officers the brakes failed, causing him to run a stop sign on Ira Road. His car hit the bus, which was traveling on Meadowbrook Drive at 3:30 p.m., said Lt. Scott Gay of the Richmond County Sheriff's Office. Gay said 56 students were on the bus.

The driver was charged with operating a vehicle with defective equipment and running a stop sign. He was also taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
