A Hamilton County school bus was involved in a hit-and-run crash on the way to pick up East Hamilton students Friday afternoon.

The bus was rear-ended by a car that left the scene, Hamilton County spokesperson Tim Hensley explained.

The crash happened at the intersection of Gadd Road and Highway 153.

Hensley said no students were on the bus at the time of the crash, and the driver of the bus was not injured.

This is the third crash involving at least one Hamilton County school bus this week.
