Assiniboia RCMP are investigating a collision between a school bus and an SUV that happened late Monday afternoon near Rockglen.

RCMP said an initial investigation found the school bus and the SUV collided at the intersection of two rural gravel roads about 6.5 kilometres south of Rockglen. The school bus rolled into the ditch as a result of the accident.

The RCMP does not have details on the cause of the accident but is saying that alcohol was not a factor.

Two men in the SUV did not report any serious injuries. 

The driver of the school bus had minor injuries. The bus was transporting children from Rockglen School at the time with nine passengers ages 16 and under. All nine children are being treated for various injuries. At this time, the RCMP have no information on how many children required hospital treatment.

The children's families have been notified.
