A Park City School District bus was involved in an accident Monday morning but investigators said there were no students on board.

Utah Highway Patrol trooper Ashton Jeffery said a man in his 20s was driving southbound on Park Avenue at about 35 mph when he fell asleep nearby the road’s intersection with Deer Valley Drive at about 7:45 a.m.

The school bus and a compact car were stopped at a red light in a left-turn lane on Park Avenue waiting to turn onto Deer Valley Drive. The man struck the car stopped in front of him, which then hit the school bus, the trooper said.
