The driver, a 41-year-old man, reportedly crashed his minivan into a school bus on Geneva Ave near Columbia Road. A witness said that the minivan driver seemed distracted.

Police reported that the driver was in critical condition after the crash. Additionally, the passenger, who was sitting beside the driver of the minivan, sustained significant injuries. The duo had combination of injuries to the neck, shoulder, back, arm and hip, the police representative stated.
