No children were injured Thursday after a Somonauk school bus crash that authorities said was caused by a Somonauk man who suffered a medical emergency.

A Somonauk School District 432 bus was headed north on Governor Beverage Highway toward Chicago Road about 3:30 p.m. Thursday, according to a news release from the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office.

The bus turned into a private driveway on the road when a 2003 GMC pickup truck driven by a 40-year-old Somonauk man collided with the rear of the bus, authorities said.

The bus was carrying about a dozen schoolchildren in kindergarten through 10th grade, according to the sheriff’s office.

A new bus arrived and took the children back to school for their parents to pick them up, according to the sheriff’s office.

No citations were issued, authorities said.
