Authorities are investigating a reported accident east of Minatare late Wednesday afternoon in which a school bus was reported to have struck a pedestrian.

Scotts Bluff County Sheriff Mark Overman says several agencies were called to the scene on Highway 26 east of County Road 35.

Unconfirmed radio communications indicated the man was hit in the back by the bus, and Overman confirmed a 20-year-old male was taken to Regional West, but later released with only very minor injuries noted.

Overman says information on the incident at this point is contradictory, and the investigation remains under investigation.

The State Patrol, Minatare Fire and Valley Ambulance also responded.
