The driver of the car, Rachel Bialaszewski, 25, reportedly told police that an uninvolved truck stopped in front of her because the bus stopped with its lights on in front of the truck.
Bialaszewski reportedly applied her brakes and slid into the other lane, missing the truck, before drifting back and ultimately striking the rear of the bus.
No injuries were reported. Bialaszewski was issued tickets for multiple traffic violations.
