Four local children were transported to the Peninsula Hospital Center on Wednesday after the school bus in which they were riding collided with a car on the corner of Beach 20 Street and Seagirt Boulevard.
Police sources say that the children, all from a local nearby school, were taken to the hospital as a precaution, and that all were examined and released to family members.
The small school bus was hit at about 7:30 a.m. on June 24 as it was taking the children to school.

The accident is under investigation.
