DINWIDDIE COUNTY, Va. -- No children were hurt when a Dinwiddie school bus skidded into a ditch Wednesday morning.

"The Trooper's preliminary investigation reveals that the driver of the school bus, Brittany Nicole Dufrene, was traveling on a narrow portion of the roadway when another vehicle approached. In attempt to provide room for both vehicles to pass, Dufrene veered over slightly and then skidded into a ditch," a Virginia State Police spokesperson said. "The bus was transporting 4 children ranging from the ages of 2-10. No injuries were reported and the crash involved very minimal damage which determines it to be non-reportable."

No charges have been filed in the incident, which was reported at about 8:02 a.m. at Baltimore and Old Pine roads in Dinwiddie County.

The crash remains under investigation. Witnesses can send news tips and photos here.
