2 Ariz. sisters injured when truck hits school bus

Two girls getting on a bus for school Monday were injured when a dump truck rear-ended the vehicle in the Phoenix suburb of Glendale.

Glendale police say the truck driver faces a civil citation for failure to control a vehicle to avoid a collision. Glendale police spokesman Officer Brent Coombs told The Associated Press the dump truck driver was checked and there was no impairment found.

There are conflicting reports as to the extent of injuries to two girls. Earlier reports had the girls facing life-threatening injuries. However, Coombs says the girls were listed in serious condition but with non-life threatening injuries. Coombs added the girls were being kept in the hospital for observation.

The driver of the dump truck did not require hospital treatment.

The bus serves Bennett Academy.
