Crews responded to reports of a crash involving a bus near the intersection of Congress Avenue and Woolbright Road, according to fire officials.
Six school-aged children were on board the bus at the time of the crash. They were evaluated by paramedics. Two children were transported to the hospital with serious injuries while the others weren’t required to go to the hospital, fire officials said. They were later released to their parents.
However, the driver of the vehicle sustained critical injuries and was transported to a local trauma center by a helicopter.
According to an official statement issued by the police department, the school bus driver was cited for careless driving. A police deputy says the driver’s foot became stuck under the pedals of the vehicle and he could not come to a stop before crashing into the vehicle.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident involving a school bus and another vehicle, which ultimately, resulted in injuries. We wish the victims a speedy recovery and hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident. Please be careful and obey the speed limits whenever you are driving a motorcycle, car, SUV or truck. We hope that all parties involved consult with an experienced trial lawyer. If you have been injured in an accident, call my office for a free consultation and find out what your rights are.”
