MELROSE — Five people were injured, one seriously, when a school bus and car were involved in a fender bender Tuesday morning, officials said. 

The school bus and car collided just before 8 a.m. near Morris Ave. and E. 151st St., an NYPD spokeswoman said.

The five injured people were taken to Lincoln Medical and Mental Health Centeran FDNY spokesman said. 

One passenger was listed in serious condition, but a fire official said that was likely due to his or her age and not reflective of the injuries sustained in the accident.

The bus driver was also among those injured, police said. 

Six or seven passengers were aboard the school bus at the time of the accident, according to police. 

This is at least the fourth school bus accident since the beginning of October.
