WEST FARMS — A school bus was rear-ended on Boston Road during rush hour Tuesday, prompting paramedics to evaluate a dozen students on board, officials said.

The accident occurred near West Farms Road, near East Tremont Avenue, about 8 a.m., an FDNY spokesman said.

None of the 12 students aboard the bus were injured, a Department of Education spokeswoman said.

No one involved in the accident was taken to a hospital, fire officials said.

The crash comes as the school bus drivers' union has vowed to strike Wednesday morning, an action that is expected to affect more than 150,000 students.
