The driver of one of the school buses was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries. At least one of the buses was transporting children at the time of the crash, but none were injured. No other injuries were reported.

Police told CP24 that the driver of the pickup truck, a man from Mississauga, was charged with dangerous driving.

The cause of the crash is unknown at this time.
