ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany Police Department confirmed that the driver of the SUV involved in a collision with a daycare bus has been cited.

Traffic was held up for nearly an hour near the corner of Dawson and Whispering Pines in Albany after a Children’s Network Daycare bus and a Ford Escape crashed.

Police said the 66-year-old driver will be cited for failure to obey a traffic control light.

There were two kids on the bus at the time, a four-year-old girl, and a little boy. 

The mom of the 4-year-old girl decided to take her daughter to urgent care as a precaution.

The driver of the Escape complained of chest pains and was checked out by EMS.

The names of the drivers in the crash have not been released.
