This morning, four students were taken to the hospital and checked for injuries after a school bus collision that occurred at 8:05am at Sheridan Avenue and Classen Boulevard, according NewsOK. The bus had existed I-40 and was headed north on Classen when it crashed into a wall. There were five students on the bus at the time of the accident, but one of the students was not injured.
Police Master Sgt. Gary Knight said that it appears that no other vehicles were involved in the accident. Emergency Medical Services Authority took four students to two separate hospitals, said spokeswoman Lara O'Leary. O'Leary also said that the students were in good condition. Details of the accident are still being investigated.
Traffic accidents, including those involving school buses or any other large vehicles that carry numerous passengers have the potential to cause serious injuries to multiple people. Although the students in this collision were relatively unharmed, people in other collisions may not be so lucky.
