NORTH LITTLE ROCK, AR (AP) - A sheriff's patrol car and a Pulaski County Magnet school bus have collided in North Little Rock.

There were no immediate reports of injuries.

Deputy John Carroll says he lost control of the patrol car in a sharp curve Monday morning and slid into the side of the bus. Carroll said he's in North Little Rock with his police dog for training.

Carroll says there were four students who appeared to be elementary age on the bus and neither they nor the driver were injured. He said his patrol car appears to be a total loss and that the bus has $4 to $5 thousand in damage.

A phone call to the school district was not immediately returned.

A witness on the scene said an Independence County Sheriff's patrol car and the bus crashed in a curve near the North Little Rock airport about 8 a.m. Monday. John Robinson said the patrol car was partly under the bus and an ambulance was on the scene.

North Little Rock police Sgt. Terry Kuykendall says Carroll was not given a ticket because it appears the weather played a significant role in the accident.
