DANUBE — No one was injured in a two-vehicle crash involving a school bus around 7:25 a.m. Monday at the intersection of Renville County Road 1 and 810th Avenue, about 2 miles south of Danube.

According to the Renville County Sheriff’s Office, a 2010 school bus, driven by Gerald Wayne Mulder, 65, of Renville, and a 2001 International truck-tractor towing an empty tanker trailer, driven by David Henry Mcclain, 36, of Willmar, were traveling northbound on Renville County Road 1.

The school bus was occupied by two children at the time of the crash. Neither of the drivers nor children on the bus sustained any injuries.

Also responding were the Minnesota State Patrol, the Olivia Police Department, the Danube Police and First Responders.
