This Kentucky crash happened around 8:46 in the morning. The bus driver told police that the bus was hit by a tractor-trailer that was passing, but police did not find evidence of this. Several hours after the crash, police determined that the bus driver lost control and veered off the interstate while a tractor-trailer passed it.
Police said that 19 people were sent to an area hospital in Glasgow, Kentucky. Injuries included cuts, bruises, and broken bones. Later on, three children and one adult were taken to a hospital in Louisville for non-life threatening injuries.
The bus was in route to Mammoth Cave National Park, and the accident happened approximately one mile north of Cave City. The bus was carrying 16 fourth graders, the bus driver, and two teachers from the Louisville Collegiate School.
Police are still investigating this crash, and no charges have been made at this time.
The attorneys at Schachter, Hendy, & Johnson would like to wish all involved in this Kentucky bus crash a full and speedy recovery.
