One vehicle's alleged failure to yield to another led to a three-vehicle collision that included a school bus yesterday afternoon at the intersection of R. Stephen Hawley Drive and Med Tech Drive.

One person suffered a minor injury and was transported to an area hospital.

Cited was Tasha L. Wiltberger, 25, of Buell Street, Batavia. She was also the person injured in the crash.

Wiltberger reportedly stopped at a stop sign facing north from Med Tech Drive while a car driven by Joshua E. McKinsey, 23, of Prestige Crossing, Batavia, was on Hawley Drive.

Wittberger allegedly pulled out in front of McKinsey's vehicle. The two vehicles collided and McKinsey's vehicle then struck a school bus that was stopped at the stop sign on College Road.  

There were a bus driver and eight students, ages 15 to 18, on the school bus.

The accident was reported at 1:06 p.m.

The accident was investigated by Deputy Rachel Diehl.
