An accident involving a bus injured seventeen people Saturday evening in Harmans.
Firefighters responded to the area of Dorsey Road and Shipley Avenue just after 8:40 p.m. They arrived to find a two-vehicle collision involving a bus and a passenger car. As a result of the collision, the bus left the roadway, went through a guardrail and into the woods. The bus did not overturn as was reported by some media.
