(COLUMBUS) - A Columbus driver was seriously injured after driving his car into the rear of a school bus yesterday and getting wedged underneath the bus at 10th Street and Marr Road.

Capt. Mike Wilson with the Columbus Fire Department says the accident happened at about 2:22 p.m. Firefighters had to use hydraulic tools to cut the driver from his car.

The driver, 50-year-old Donald Atwood of Columbus, was taken first by ambulance and then by Lifeline helicopter to IU Methodist Hospital. That's according to our news-gathering partners at The Republic.

No children were onboard the bus at the time of the crash and the bus driver was uninjured.

Firefighters then spent about 20 minutes trying to separate the two vehicles. He said that meant using rescue air bags to lift the bus off the car so it could be pulled out by winch.
