The OPP has given one of its own officers a traffic ticket after his cruiser rear-ended a school bus loaded with children outside a Fergus high school on Tuesday afternoon. 

The crash between the two vehicles happened 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon at the corner of Scotland Street and McQueen Boulevard near Centre Wellington District High School. 

Police said the school bus was stopped when it was rear-ended by the officer's cruiser. 

No-one on the bus was hurt, but the policeman received a minor injury and was taken to a local hospital, where he was treated and released. 

The police officer has been issued a provincial offence ticket in connection to the incident.
