School officials say the person driving the pickup truck is a female student.  Witnesses say the truck ran through a stop sign and hit the back corner of the school bus near the tire on the driver's side.  The bus ended up in a yard, behind a house.

"You never like these kind of calls and your first question is, any injuries and how serious if any.  We`re thankful it doesn`t appear to be any more serious than it is at this time," Lauderdale County Schools Superintendent, William Valentine.

The homeowner helped the students on the bus until paramedics arrived.

"They were a little shook up, but the ambulances arrived quite quickly they were taken care of," said Angela Marks, who heard the crash.
