No injuries were reported after a school bus crashed into a pole and a building in downtown Waukegan Tuesday morning.
The Waukegan Police Department and Waukegan Fire Department responded around 6:50 a.m. Tuesday to Washington Street and Genesee Street.
Emergency crews responded to a report of a school bus that struck a pole at the intersection.
The bus appeared to be traveling eastbound on Washington Street when it left the roadway and struck a traffic standard pole.
The bus came to a stop against the front entrance of a vacant building at 1 South Genesee Street, which used to be a bank branch.
Waukegan School District 60 Director of Communications Nicholas Alatzakis said no students were on the bus.
The bus was in between running routes, Alatzakis said, adding that he did not have additional information on the crash.
Paramedics evaluated the driver of the bus, who did not need to be transported to the hospital.
The Waukegan Public Works Department and Waukegan Building Department were both called to the scene to evaluate the damaged pole and the building.
Waukegan Deputy Police Chief Joe Florip said he did not have any information yet on how the crash was caused.
