CEDAR CITY – An Iron County school bus was involved in a school bus accident in Cedar City on State Route 56, Tuesday morning.
Iron County School District Superintendent Shannon Dulaney confirmed that a bus bound for North Elementary in Cedar City ran into the back of another bus between 8 and 9 a.m.
