No injuries were reported when a bus carrying Pennsylvania National Guard Members crashed into a fireworks store in New Milford.

Pennsylvania State Police say the bus driver had picked up guard members in Honesdale and was on his way to the New Milford Armory when the crash happened.

Troopers say the driver took the bus into a driveway, tried to turn around in a field and came back to the driveway before he passed out.  The bus then went across a field, hit a utility pole and went through the side wall of Monforte Fireworks.

The front of the bus and the side of the building were heavily damaged.

Police say the driver refused medical treatment at the scene.

Troopers said no tickets were issued
