MILWAUKIE, Ore. -- A driver of a car was hurt in a collision with a school bus near Milwaukie Wednesday morning.

There were three students on the bus and none of them or the school bus driver were hurt, according to Clackamas County sheriff's deputies. The driver of the car, 24-year-old Kenneth Ridings of Milwaukie, was taken to the hospital.

Deputies said the bus driver, 54-year-old Mark Harvey, saw Ridings' car pull out in front of him from a stop sign, but he couldn't stop in time to prevent a collision.

Ridings will be cited for failure to obey a stop sign, deputies said.

The crash took place near SE Oatfield Road and SE Pinehurst Avenue, about one mile from the View Acres Elementary School. It is unknown if the students were headed to that school.

It's the second local crash involving a school bus in two days. On Tuesday, a school bus was knocked on its side near Molalla after a collision with a semi truck.

Two students were hurt in that crash but their injuries were not life-threatening. The school bus driver was cited.
