Minneapolis Public Schools confirmed the bus involved was a Septern bus driving a route for the district. MPS said one student was on the bus at the time and was uninjured.
An employee who answered the phone at Septran said the Bloomington company had no comment at this time.
The company is one of five used by Minneapolis Public Schools to transport students.
