State Police said a Clay City woman had to be cut out of her SUV after colliding with a Montgomery County School Bus Monday afternoon.

Investigators said the accident happened on KY 11 (Levee Road) near Cane Valley.

State Police said Paula Hatton was traveling south on KY 11 when she failed to negotiate a right hand curve, causing her Ford Explorer to cross over the centerline and into the path of a Montgomery County School Bus.

Investigators said Hatton overcorrected her SUV, collided with the bus in the front end with the left rear portion of her vehicle. 

State Police said the contact with the bus forced Hatton's SUV over an embankment, coming to rest with her trapped inside the vehicle.

State Police said after she was extricated, she was taken to St. Joseph Hospital in Mount Sterling with non-life threatening injuries.

State Police said neither the driver nor the children on the bus were injured.
