RICHMOND, Va. — Authorities say the three separate school bus wrecks in Virginia’s capital region have not yielded serious injuries.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports the Monday crashes took place in Richmond, Chesterfield County and Dinwiddie County.

Dinwiddie schools spokeswoman Christie Clark says all 20 elementary school students were uninjured after their bus struck a train overpass shortly after 8 a.m. She said sheriff’s officials were investigating the collision.

Police say a Chesterfield bus was struck from behind in a minor collision involving two other vehicles. The two or three children aboard the bus were uninjured. One driver was issued a summons.

A Richmond police spokeswoman says an afternoon three-vehicle crash resulted in a head-on collision with a school bus. Two of the 10 child passengers were examined, and no one suffered serious injuries.
