Louisville Car Accident Involves School BusPosted on Sep 09, 2010
According to Jefferson County Public School (JCPS) officials, the bus pulled out and into the path of a Ford Escape near 26th and Madison. The school bus was transporting eleven children from Bloom Elementary when the collision occurred.
Rescue crews transported four of the children to Kosair Children’s Hospital where they were treated for injuries sustained in the accident. Four other children were taken to the hospital by their parents. Fortunately, all of their injuries were considered minor.
The bus driver and the driver of the car were taken to University Hospital where they were treated for minor injuries, as well.
The Louisville auto accident is still under investigation by local authorities. Police have indicated that the bus driver was at fault, but she has not been cited at this point.
JCPS has yet to determine if the bus driver will get to keep her job as a result of the two-vehicle wreck.
This is a serious incident and we wish all of the victims a speedy recovery during this difficult time.
