A teenager suffered minor injuries in a vehicle accident at 7:10 a.m. Wednesday in Johnson County.

James W. Sherrod, 41, of Warrensburg, was driving on southbound Business Highway 13, attempting to make a left turn onto Southeast County Road 150, when he was struck from behind by Derrick R. Stoneking, 19, of Leeton, according to a Missouri State Highway Patrol report.

The impact of the crash pushed Sherrodís vehicle into the northbound lane, where it struck a school bus driven by Willie H. Roverson, 62, of Warrensburg. Stoneking was taken to Western Missouri Medical Center in Warrensburg by a private vehicle.

Reports indicate all three drivers were wearing seat belts at the time of the accident.
