Emergency crews rushed to the scene of an accident between a car and a school bus near Halifax Wednesday morning.

The car rear-ended the school bus on Prospect Road near Exhibition Park in Goodwood.

No children were on board and the driver was not injured.

The female driver of the car was taken to hospital. There is no word on the extent of her injuries at this time.

Emergency crews were concerned about the possibility of a fire because the car was leaking fuel.

Rush-hour traffic was badly backed up for several hours but it has since cleared up.
