HAMILTON TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

Three school buses crashed in separate accidents amid heavy fog early Wednesday, injuring one bus driver.

A male bus driver suffered a minor injury after losing control and running into a ditch on the side of Rossburg-Dallasburg Road at Hill Station Road near the Clermont-Warren county line about 6:30 a.m.

He was taken to TriHealth Bethesda Arrow Springs, said Hamilton Township Fire Capt. James Conley.

Only one high school student, 19, was on the bus, and he was not hurt, Conley said.

Hamilton Township police are still investigating the cause.

"It may have just taken a corner too fast," Conley said.

The bus serves students in neighboring Goshen Local Schools.

A representative from the school bus company declined comment.

Goshen Township firefighters suggested in a Facebook posting fog could be a factor.

"It is VERY foggy this morning and we have already had several injury accidents this morning," they wrote. "Please be careful on your morning commute to work and school."

Shortly after 7 a.m., a car crashed into a stopped, school bus picking up students at the intersection of Guerley Road and Tuxworth Avenue in West Price Hill, Cincinnati police said.

Police said no one was hurt, but worried parents went to the scene, picked up their children and took them for medical care.

Roger Simpson and Jamie Lowen said they flew up in sheer terror as soon as one of their daughters phoned.

"I was almost in tears because I don't want nothing to happen to my kids," Roger Simpson said.

"You hear about all these bus accidents all the time and kids not making it out and I didn't know how bad the accident was," Jamie Lowen said. "It's scary. You don't want nothing to happen to your kids. You trust the bus to get your kids to school safely. I'm not going to trust them back on the bus again. I'll walk them a mile if I need to."

Finally, a third bus ran off the road and into a ditch at Independence and Bristow roads about 8 a.m. in Kenton County.

Two students on the bus were not hurt.

The driver complained of feeling dizzy but was not taken to a hospital.
