Yorkton RCMP are continuing to investigate a collision that occurred between a school bus and semi Wednesday morning.
It happened at the intersection of Broadway Avenue and Lawrence Avenue.
Cpl. Rob King, an RCMP spokesman, says the cause of the incident is still unknown. He says the truck collided with the bus, damaging its front end and the semi's trailer.
“There was only two people on the bus. There was a driver and a lone child. The child was not hurt. The driver had some minor injuries and was taken to hospital as precaution,” said King.

The two day blitz is just the first of what will continue to be a monthly targeted traffic focus between the partners.
Brinkworth said focusing on drivers using cell phones is a good way to kick it off.

"On the Regina plains we peaked out in 1981 at a thousand dollars an acre and now that same land could probably sell for fourteen to fifteen hundred dollars an acre, again."

Despite heavy criticisms across Canada, the provincial government isn't worried about the potential costs surrounding the new federal tough on crime bill.
Ontario and Quebec's premiers have slammed the bill, insisting it will drastically increase provincial costs pertaining to jails and courts.
However, Saskatchewan Justice Minister Don Morgan expects the costs will be lower than expected, partly because our province is running out of jail space.
“We know that our current system is at or near capacity,” said Morgan.
