GOLDEN VALLEY - The 21-year-old driver of a passenger car rear-ended a school bus Wednesday with enough force to drive about five feet under the vehicle.

Four students who were on the Kingman Unified School District bus and the driver were uninjured in the 4:40 p.m. wreck, which occurred as the bus driver slowed down for a bus stop at Maverick and Chino roads in Golden Valley, according to Golden Valley Fire Chief Tom O'Donohue.

The unidentified driver of the passenger car, who was not wearing a seat belt, refused medical attention despite sustaining a laceration to his head and cuts on his arms and face after striking the windshield, according to Mohave County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Trish Carter.

The driver was cited for driving on a suspended license.

Speed is a possible factor and other charges could be filed, said Carter.

The students were released to their parents. The roadway was blocked for about two hours so deputies and school authorities could investigate the accident.
