NORCROSS, Ga. -- Traffic dispatchers reported two separate accidents involving school buses in metro Atlanta Thursday morning.

No children were aboard one school bus when it overturned in a Gwinnett County intersection shortly before 6:30 a.m.

The bus collided with a pickup truck at Peachtree Parkway and Spalding Drive.

Dispatchers said there were no serious injuries, but the bus flipped on its side in the crash.

One lane of Spalding Drive was closed as crews work to clear the scene. The road has since reopened.

The second wreck happened at around 8 a.m. on Westward Court at Westward Drive in Marietta.

A Marietta City Schools spokesperson said 68 Dunleith Elementary School students were aboard the bus when it backed into a parked car. No one was hurt.
