The driver of a car that struck the back of a mini-school bus Friday morning in Melville was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, officials said.

The bus driver and a 7-year-old student were not injured in the accident, police said.

Suffolk County police did not release the identities of the male bus driver or the student, who were aboard the Educational Bus Transportation Inc. bus when it was rear-ended while stopped at a light on Wolf Hill Road at New York Avenue at 8:38 a.m.

The driver of the car, identified only as a woman, was transport by Melville Fire Department ambulance to Huntington Hospital for treatment of minor injuries, police said. Her condition was not immediately known.

Earlier, fire officials had said there were no students aboard the bus. Later, a fire official said it was possible the student had exited the bus before the arrival of firefighters on the scene.

Police said the injured woman was driving her Lexus west on Wolf Hill Road when she struck the rear of the mini bus.

No one was charged.
