KINGSPORT, Tenn. -

A Church Hill man was cited for failure to yield right-of-way after police say he ran a red light and hit a school bus.

Police tell us it happened at the intersection of Stone Drive and Afton Street Wednesday morning.

They say the bus had a green light and started to pull through the intersection when a van struck the bus on the left front side.

We've learned the driver of the van was 56-year-old Jerry Lester. 

Bus 7 had 19 students on board. No one was injured.
