QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Quincy Police released new information late Wednesday night on a car and school bus collision that happened earlier in the day on 24th and Cedar.

The accident happened at about 4:00 p.m. Wednesday in front of Fire Station #6.

Police have issued a citation to a driver of the bus, Gregory Shoenekase of Quincy for failing to yield right of way.

Shoenekase claimed that he made a complete stop at the intersection, when he saw another car driven by a Saint Louis woman approach the intersection with her right turn signal on.

Believing the woman was going to turn, Shoenekase continued straight. Then the woman collided with the bus. The woman claimed that she did not have her turn signal on, and a witness driving behind her could not recall if she did.

The car was lodged under the rear driver's side tire of the bus.

There were three children on the bus at the time of the collision.

No injuries were reported.
