ROCKFORD (WREX) - A Rockford Public School bus and a car collided at Charles and 14th Streets Tuesday afternoon.

An RPS 205 official said 15 students from the Washington Gifted Academy and a driver were on the bus.  None of them were injured.

Transportation Director Gregg Wilson said the bus was Route 46.  

"We have called or attempted to call all parents and left messages," said Wilson.

The students on the bus were first through fifth graders.  Some parents came to pick up their children.  The other students were loaded onto a new bus and taken home.

The school bus sustained substantial damage and will be either replaced or repaired based on an inspection by the school's transportation team.

The accident is under investigation.
