A bus driver has been ticketed after hitting another vehicle at an intersection.

According to a news report from the Illinois State Police District 19, Sheila M. Jenkins, 52, of Equality stopped her school bus at the westbound yield sign on McClernand Avenue at the intersection with North Lincoln Boulevard in Shawneetown — she then proceeded to cross North Lincoln Boulevard when she struck the passenger side of a Chevrolet Avalanche, driven by Robert P. Downen, 91, traveling on North Lincoln Boulevard.

Neither the drivers nor any of the 20 children on the bus were injured in the accident. The report says both vehicles were driven from the scene and Jenkins was cited for failure to yield at a yield intersection.
