A Toyota truck and a school bus collided in Gig Harbor this afternoon, injuring one student and a passenger in the truck.

The truck and bus were traveling east on state Route 302 about 2:30 p.m. when the bus stopped for traffic at 144th Street Northwest and the truck ran into it, according to the State Patrol.

One of the 37 children on board the bus sustained minor injuries.

A 16-year-old boy who was a passenger in the Toyota was taken to St. Anthony’s Hospital after he complained of neck and back pain.

The 17-year-old boy who was driving the truck was not injured.

Troopers said speed was a factor in the collision.
