School Bus Accident In Wayne County

WAYNE COUNTY -- It was a bumpy ride to school for a busload of elementary school children Wednesday. The Highway Patrol says an accident sent three children to the hospital.

Trooper A.R. Fowler with the Highway Patrol in Wayne County says a dump truck and a school bus hit each other's mirrors on Slick Rock Rd. near Highway 111. The bus was transporting about forty children to Spring Creek Elementary. The call was reported to authorities at 7:40 a.m.

Trooper Fowler says the windows in the bus were down, and flying glass hit some children. Three were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

The dump truck did not stop after the accident, Trooper Fowler says, which classifies the accident as a hit and run. The only description of the dump truck the school bus driver was able to provide so far was that it was red and white.
