A city school bus collided with a passenger vehicle earlier this morning and one person was reportedly transported to a local hospital.

Tennessee Highway Patrol is in charge of the crash investigation.

According to Bradley County 911 reports, the crash occurred just after 6:30 a.m., near Willow and Keith Streets.

The bus wasn’t occupied by students at the time and the bus driver wasn’t injured. The driver of the passenger car suffered a knee injury during the crash, according to reports.

Bradley County Emergency Medical Service, Cleveland Police and Cleveland Fire Department responded to the scene.

THP was then notified to investigate.

- Chainsaws and other items were taken from a storage building located on the property of Allen Ownby.

Ownby, who lives at an Armstrong Road address, told deputy Cordus Waller he had been out of town and when he returned Friday, he discovered someone had been in his storage building.

A Poulan Farm Boss chainsaw, and a Poulan Pro-445 chainsaw, a 250-foot roll of copper wire, a 100-foot extension cord and a 20-foot section of chain were taken from the building. The missing items were valued at $1,210.

Investigation has been turned over to the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division.

- Waller also filed a report at a Hensley Road home where the owner said someone had taken a heat and air unit.

Ken Vernon told Waller someone entered the back yard of his rental property and drove up to the heat and air unit, cut wiring and lines, then loaded the unit up and left with it.

Vernon valued the heat and air unit at $2,500.
