An Elizabethtown man was arrested Friday after colliding with a school bus on Rineyville Big Springs Road.

Todd A. Pavey, 22, of Scarlet Oak Circle, was charged with operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Pavey admitted to troopers he smoked marijuana earlier that day, according to an arrest citation.

Pavey was attempting to drive around a stopped vehicle when he hit a Hardin County Schools bus, according to the citation.

Only a few students and the driver were on the bus at the time and no one was injured, according to HCS Community Relations Director John Wright.

Pavey was lodged Friday in the Hardin County Detention Center and released on bond Saturday.
