JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

No children were injured in a crash between a school bus and a box truck Tuesday morning on the Westside.

State troopers said the truck was heading eastbound on 103rd Street in the right lane at Green Forest Drive just before 7 a.m., and a school bus carrying 19 students was heading eastbound in the center lane.

Troopers said a car was stopped for traffic in the right lane, and the box truck tried to avoid colliding with the car by changing to the center lane.

The left side of the truck hit the right side of the school bus, and the right rear of the box truck then hit the left side of the car that was stopped.

The driver of the car, 25-year-old Ronald Gosnell, suffered minor injuries. No one else was hurt.

Troopers cited the driver of the truck, 42-year-old Christopher Wright, with improper lane change.
