Police stated that a pickup truck lost control on the center line and struck a school bus filled with children head-on.
According to the police report, the pickup truck was driven by a 34-year-old man. He reportedly lost control of the truck near E Indian Trail intersection. Subsequently, the pickup driver swerved toward the oncoming school bus. The crash occurred suddenly, when the truck was traveling at a high speed, police said. Ultimately, the pickup collided with the front part of the bus head-on; then, the two came to a halt.
Emergency crew arrived at the site of the accident and attended the injured victims. The driver of the pickup truck reportedly sustained neck and hip injuries. After the crash, he appeared immobile. However, from the report given by the crew, the injuries sustained were not life-threatening.
Meanwhile, eight juveniles sustained injuries when they were thrown from their seats. Consequently, the condition of the juveniles is presently unknown, police stated. The average age of the 15 children on the school bus is 14 years. Additionally, the police have not released the identities of the students on board.
The driver of the school bus sustained minor injuries and complained of pain to the back.
Dr. Brian Elias, from The Accident and Injury Team, comments on this crash. “We are grateful that this accident involving a pickup truck and a school bus in Louisville was not fatal. Nevertheless, it is always serious and disconcerting whenever young people are injured in an accident. Regardless of whether an accident is major or minor, it is imperative to seek medical attention afterwards. Often, there are residual injuries. We wish everyone involved in this crash a speedy recovery.”
