The driver of a bus that collided with an SUV in Woodstock Thursday morning, injuring eight people, has been cited for failing to yield at an intersection.

The Woodstock Fire/Rescue District and the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office was called around 8:15 a.m. Thursday to the area of Franklinville Road and Perkins Road in unincorporated Woodstock for a report of a bus crash.

The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office said that a 2016 Ford F450 bus, driven by 24-year-old Celetra Moses, of Woodstock, was driving eastbound on Perkins Road and had stopped at the stop sign. A 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe, driven by 52-year-old woman from Marengo, was driving northbound on Franklinville Road and did not have a stop sign.
