A school bus overturns leaving at least 20 students injured. On Aug. 21, ABC News reported that more than half of the people on board were hurt including the driver of the bus. There were quite a few neck and back injuries but nothing life-threatening and everyone is expect to be okay.
"The bus, which was carrying sixth-grade girls from Pembroke Hills School, overturned while rounding a sharp curve on a highway ramp in Bonner Springs, about 20 miles west of Kansas City, Mo., where the private school is located, said Kansas Highway Patrol Trooper Howard Dickinson. Their male classmates were on the other bus," ABC News reported.
The school bus overturns but two hours later tow trucks were able to right the bus and tow it away. Several people stopped to help out and many were able to remove students from the bus in case it went up in flames. There is currently an investigation surrounding the accident and many have questions for the bus' driver. So far, Warrenville, Ill.-based Durham School Services deferred comment and no questions have been directly answered yet.
The most important thing here is that everyone involved is okay. While some may have suffered a broken bone or two, this accident was more scary than anything else. The average student on the bus was 11-years-old and the report states that the kids were credited with being very "brave."
