OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Authorities have released more details about a collision in Omaha involving a school bus and a vehicle.

The Omaha Police Department says a vehicle driven by 19-year-old James Jones struck a school bus Thursday afternoon. Jones is accused of driving at a high speed when his vehicle rear-ended the bus.

A police report says Jones told authorities his brakes failed. He and a passenger in his vehicle, 18-year-old Kahla Barnes, were taken to a local hospital.

A driver and several children in the bus were not injured. The report says Barnes suffered facial lacerations. Additional information about the injuries was not released.

Jones received a citation for driving too fast for the conditions, and not having proof of car insurance. He has a court appearance scheduled in April.
