The Tennessee Highway Patrol cited a Clay County school bus driver following a Friday afternoon crash.

A THP crash report said the bus had 16 school children on board when the accident happened on Highway 52. None of the children suffered injuries.

According to the report, 33-year-old Heather C. Johnson was driving the bus westbound near the intersection of Arcot Road. 41-year-old Natalie Boone was in front of the bus attempting to turn left onto Arcot Road.
