The St. Louis car accident lawyers recently heard of a car accident with injuries involving a school bus. The news story is as follows:
Six people received minor to moderate injuries in a Missouri car accident involving a school bus on Friday, May 24.
The accident occurred shortly before 9 a.m. on Friday, according to local news reports.
The First Student school bus involved in the crash was carrying preschool students to the last day of early learning programs at Dewey and Wilkinson learning centers.
A preliminary police investigation shows that a four-door car apparently rear-ended the school bus. It is not yet known what caused the driver of the car to lose control. The driver has not been identified at this point.
Both vehicles were overturned, according to a spokesperson from the St. Louis Fire Department.
The driver of the car, two adults on the bus and three children on the bus were being treated for injuries. The children were taken to Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital, and the adults were transported to St. Louis University Hospital.
According to a spokesperson from the St. Louis Public Schools, the children were x-rayed as a precaution measure. Two were sent home the same day, and the third was expected to remain in the hospital overnight for treatment of minor injuries.
None of the adults suffered life-threatening injuries, but their exact status is unknown.
The southbound lanes of Interstate 55 were temporarily closed just past downtown at the 7th Street exit for about one hour following the crash while police investigated the cause of the St. Louis car accident.
We wish the victims a speedy and complete recovery.
