The driver of a school bus suffered minor injuries in a crash with a semi trailer Friday on the Trans-Canada Highway.

It happened just before 8:30 a.m. near Virden. Three children were on the bus but they were not hurt, RCMP said.

The bus was turning onto the Trans Canada from Highway 41 when the front end was hit by the semi. There was significant damage to the front end of both vehicles, police said.

Both lanes of the Trans Canada in that area are blocked to traffic, which is being rerouted by RCMP.

The matter is still under investigation.
