Detroit — A 10-year-old girl was hospitalized early Monday with apparent minor injuries after a school bus crash on the city's northwest side, police said.

The crash occurred around 7:40 a.m. at Pickford and Asbury Park, in an area south of Seven Mile Road and east of the Southfield Freeway, Officer Dan Robinson said.

An ABC Transportation school bus, driven by a 46-year-old female, clipped the rear of a green Pontiac Sunfire while attempting to make a left turn from Asbury Park onto Pickford, Robinson said. There were six children onboard the bus at the time of the crash.

"A 10-year-old little girl complained of a headache and she was conveyed to the hospital," Robinson said. "(We're) not sure if she struck her head."

A 13-year-old boy complained of a sore wrist but his mother arrived on scene and sent him to school, Robinson said.

Both injuries appear to be minor, he said. It is unclear if anyone else was injured. The remaining children were picked up by their parents, he said.

The Pontiac involved in the crash was driven by a 38-year-old male, Robinson said. Police are investigating to determine who was at fault.
