Bus Crashes with Children On Board
A school bus driver has been injured after crashing his bus into a vehicle and then into a building. Students were on board. The accident happened at Northwest 36th Street and 20th Court. After the crash, the bus, the front end started smoking. Two bystanders rushed to the scene and opened the rear emergency escape door of the bus. They began offloading the children and took them to a safe place. From there, they dialed 911.
Police officials state that 14 children between the ages of 5 and 6 were on board the bus at the time of the accident. Only the driver of the bus was injured. The driver was transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital. Officials are still investigating whether the driver may have suffered from a possible cardiac arrest, causing him to lose control of the bus.
The children on the bus were extremely lucky to have people nearby who thought of their safety first. Potential serious injuries were very possibly avoided because of their quick reaction to the situation.
