Two adults and one child suffered minor injuries when two school buses collided in Copiague, New York on Tuesday.

The accident occurred near 455 Molloy Street, Copiague at about 3:15 p.m., according to Newsday. Police say the two drivers and a girl aboard the smaller of the two buses were injured. The girl was the only passenger on either bus. The collision resulted in the smaller bus overturning, Newsday reported. The larger bus was heading south on Molloy Street when it collided with the smaller bus that was heading west.

All three people were taken to Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center in West Islip with non-life threatening injuries. No charges have been filed but the investigation is ongoing. Police have determined that say drugs or alcohol were not factors, Newsday reported.

This is the second time this month an accident has shaken the Copiague community. Two weeks ago, a crash involving a truck and a car closed Montauk Highway in both directions at Great Neck Road for about two hours Wednesday, Newsday reported.
