A Washington County Public Schools bus hit the side of a bridge on Sprecher Road on Monday morning, Deputy Socks of the Washington County Sheriff's Office said.

Nobody was injured.

Students were on the bus and headed to summer school at Springfield Middle School, according to Socks.


The incident happened in front of Camp Mary Mac in Sharpsburg. The bus was crossing a bridge there and hit the guardrail on the side.

Very minor damage was done to the bus, Socks said. Paint from the bus could be seen on the guardrail of the bridge.


Police responded to the incident at 7:21 a.m., a supervisor for Washington County Emergency Services said. The scene was cleared at 8:06 a.m.
