The second happened on State Street and Andrew Street near the intersection of State and Sherman.

FOX 55 could not confirm who was at fault in the second accident.

In the first accident, both the driver of the bus and the driver of the car complained of pain and in the second only a few complaints of mild pains were reported from the students.

FWCS spokeswoman Krista Stockman says with increased traffic in the morning and afternoons, it’s important to remain extra vigilant.

"We just ask everyone to remember that, especially in the morning hours when there is a lot of extra traffic, and in the afternoon, just pay attention, be patient, slow down and just watch out for kids," Stockman explained.

Students who complain of pains are monitored throughout the day, per FWCS protocol.
