Woods was cited for failure to yield to an oncoming vehicle, police said.

Four students and an adult aide were on board the bus at the time of the crash, but no student injuries were reported, Harford County Public Schools spokeswoman Jillian Lader said. The students were transferred to another bus to continue their route to school, she said.
