BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) -- A police car has struck the rear of a stopped school bus in southern Illinois.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports that no one was injured in the collision Friday.

The bus had stopped to make a pick-up when the squad car ran under its rear bumper. Five students between the ages of 6 and 11 were on the bus at the time.

Belleville Police Capt. Don Sax says the officer was driving at low speed and was "momentarily distracted."

A wet roadway was also believed to have been a contributing factor in the collision.
