Two Students Injured After Detroit School Bus Crash
Two students were injured after the school bus they were riding on was struck by a car while traveling on the northside of the city.
According to police officials, the accident occurred when a woman was driving her Buick near Plymouth Road and Meyers when she collided with a bus that was being operated by ABC Student Transportation and transporting students to Detroit Public Schools.
The impact caused the woman to lose control of her car and it traveled across the road to the other side of the street. The driver and the child passenger in the car both sustained non-life threatening injuries in the collision. Officials with the school district have stated there were 13 students on the bus at the time of the collision.
Two students were treated after the bus collision and one student was transported to the hospital for treatment. Witnesses to the accident stated that the female driver was yelling that her brakes went out and she was unable to stop in time before striking the bus.
Emergency crews had to use the Jaws of Life in order to get the woman out of her car. The bus driver was able to get all of the children back on the bus when they attempted to exit after the collision. The exact cause of the collision has not yet been determined.
