MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – One person was injured Wednesday morning in a crash involving a school bus and motorized wheelchair in Miami Beach, authorities said.

According to Miami Beach police, the bus was heading south on Harding Avenue when someone in a motorized wheelchair darted into the street.

The rear-end of the bus scraped the wheelchair, causing it to fall over and knocking the occupant to the ground.
