A police spokesman said: “We were called to a crash between a school-bus and a lorry at 3.15pm on the A90, near the Inverbervie turn-off.
“There were 15 children on board.
“The road isn’t closed but the vehicles are obstructing one lane of the road, and there are tailbacks in the area.
“There were no major injuries.”
However, a spokesman from the ambulance service said: “We received a call today to attend a road traffic collision on the A90 near Stonehaven.
“We transported one patient to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.”
An Aberdeenshire Council spokesman said: “A bus carrying Inverurie Academy pupils to a football match was in collision with another vehicle on the A90 at around quarter past three this afternoon.
“Thankfully, there were no serious injuries, although one pupil has been taken to hospital as a precaution.
“The pupils are being taken back to Inverurie in another vehicle, and the school is contacting parents and guardians.”
