FAYETTE (KWWL) -

A North Fayette Community School bus was involved in a crash with a tractor pulling a liquid manure spreader.

It happened Thursday just before 4:30 p.m. on O Avenue just south of 220th Street in rural Fayette County, according to the Fayette County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities believe Brent Mitchell, 55, of Hawkeye was driving the tractor, and was making a wide turn when the bus failed to yield and side-swiped the tractor.

The bus went into the ditch.

Four students were on board, and were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

The crash remains under investigation.
