Bus Accident Injures 7 Students

Seven elementary school students, a student aid, and their bus driver were injured in a bus accident in Ohio Wednesday afternoon. The accident occurred when a semi-truck drove through a traffic light, colliding with the bus.

Many of the injured children were special needs students. The bus was taking the students back from classes when the bus accident occurred. The injured students, bus driver, and student aid were taken to the Fulton County Health Care Center for treatment.

The truck driver was injured as well. He was flown by helicopter to a hospital in Toledo for treatment. While the bus accident is still under investigation, police believe the accident was caused by the truck driver’s failure to stop at a traffic light.

The bus driver reportedly has a clean record and is an excellent driver. After the accident, his primary concern was the safety of the students in his charge. According to police, the aid and students trained to handle emergency situations acted appropriately during the accident.
