Emergency Medical Services reported ten children injured in a single-vehicle crash involving a school bus on South Pope Lick Road.
Police said a school bus rolled over into a ditch by the side of the road as it was returning children from school. The 36-year-old bus driver reportedly lost control of the bus when he was navigating the bend, police said in a statement. According to authorities, there were 17 juveniles on board the bus when the crash occurred.
“We cannot state affirmatively, what lead to the accident,” police said.
Authorities clarified that the crash could be caused by different factors. Police stated that the accident could have been caused by distracted driving. Additionally, another contributing factor could be exceeding the speed limit.
EMS reported that ten students sustained injuries. Some of the injuries were to the head, neck and back, while others were to their shoulder and hip. Four students also complained of slight pains to the back and on the arm.
Emergency crew transported the ten students and the bus driver to a nearby hospital for medical treatment.
Dr. Brian Elias, from The Accident and Injury Team, commented on the crash. “It’s disheartening whenever there is an accident involving children. We are sorry to see this happen in Louisville. We are grateful, however, that there were no fatalities. Additionally, we wish everyone involved a speedy recovery from this crash.”
