(WKTV) - While schools in Central New York welcomed students back from summer vacation Thursday, it wasn't smooth sailing for everyone.

A Birnie Bus got into an accident Thursday morning on Mohawk Street in Utica. Police say a car ran a flashing light, hit the bus, spun and then hit the bus again, causing the bus to hit a light pole.

The driver of the car sustained minor injuries and was ticketed. No children were on the bus and the bus driver was uninjured.
