CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a woman was injured after a Tampa Bay area school bus crashed into her car.
    
Clearwater police say the Pinellas County school bus was heading to Curlew Creek Elementary with four special-needs students Friday morning when it hit a convertible. A witness told police the bus had run a red light.
    
The car's driver was airlifted to a nearby hospital with serious injuries. No injuries were reported to the bus driver or the students, who were picked up by another bus and taken to school.
    
Authorities say charges are pending against the bus driver.
