Two early morning bus accidents in Suffolk County left one person injured Thursday, Suffolk County police said.

A school bus and car collided at 6:55 a.m. on the William Floyd Parkway and the intersection with Roberts Road in Shirley.

Authorities said the bus, carrying students to William Floyd High School, was making a left turn onto Roberts from the southbound parkway when a northbound car went through a traffic light and slid under the rear of the bus.

No one was injured in that crash. Police said the driver of the car, who was not identified, was issued a summons for failure to obey a traffic device.

In another accident in Brentwood at 6:47 a.m., a Suffolk Transit bus and car crashed near the intersection of Washington Avenue and Arthur Street. The car's driver was taken to a hospital with undisclosed injuries, police said. That person was not identified.

The crashes came a day after an MTA bus crashed into a school bus carrying preschool students at an intersection in Cedarhurst. Officials said 27 people, including 14 children, suffered minor injuries.
