Yesterday morning 49 students were sent to Marion County hospitals after a school bus accident. The Warren Township bus was taking students to Brookview Elementary School at about 8:30 a.m. when its passenger side mirror hit a utility pole.
According to a Marion County school district spokesman, the mirror bent inward and shattered glass inside the bus. A few students suffered cuts and scrapes, but most were sent to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis as a precautionary measure.
A spokesperson for Marion County Emergency Medical Services stated that all injuries were minor.
After the school bus accident, parents or guardians were given the option of picking up their children from the hospital or allowing them to take another bus to school.
The school bus driver was not issued a traffic citation in the incident.
The children involved in this Indianapolis school bus accident were incredibly lucky. There were no broken bones, head injuries, or back injuries reported as a result of the crash.
School bus accidents, though rare, often result in more significant injuries to passengers than yesterday’s Warren Township accident. That the passengers on school buses are usually small children makes school bus accidents even more devastating.
