Authorities reported that a school bus carrying 8 students home from a local Elementary School, was rear-ended in an accident on US One. This incident led to three of the students being sent to a nearby hospital.
Police officials say the accident happened when an elementary school bus was rear-ended by another vehicle. This second vehicle was a pickup truck that was also hit from behind at the intersection of Northeast 13th Street and US One.
The school bus was stopped on US One waiting for the opportunity to turn left. The pickup truck that collided with the bus was stopped behind it waiting at the same intersection. A third vehicle approached and rammed into the pickup truck from the rear pushing it forward until it forcefully rear-ended the bus ahead.
EMS arrived on the scene and administered first aid to the injured victims. They reported that three children, out of the 8 total on board, were transported to the nearby Medical Center as a precaution for testing and observation. None of the drivers or occupants of the other vehicles were injured, according to EMS
