MIDLAND - The ride home from school got a little bumpy Thursday afternoon for some Midland kids when their bus was hit by a car.

It happened behind the Denny's at Midkiff and Wall, not long after school let out.

According to police, the car was following the bus too closely and slammed into the back of the bus.

One of the kids on the bus was taken to the hospital, along with the bus driver as a precaution.

The woman driving, who is pregnant, also went to the hospital.

She'll get a ticket for following too closely.
