A Del Norte County school bus hit a tree on Kings Valley Road on Monday at around 4 p.m. None of the students  onboard were injured.

According to a highway patrol press release, April Sneed was driving north on Kings Valley at between 30 and 35 miles an hour when she drove off the right side of the road and ran into a dirt embankment. Then Sneed overcorrected, making an unsafe turn to the left side of the road where she crashed into a tree. She suffered minor scratches to her left hand.

Derrick Campbell, director of transportation for Del Norte County Unified School District, said he couldn’t comment on an accident that’s currently under investigation.
