School Bus Crash Claims Life of Elementary Student, Injures 23 Others

On the first day of school, a minivan hit their school bus, causing it to go over, killing one elementary kid and injuring 23 others, one of whom had severe injuries.

According to a news release from the Ohio State Highway Patrol, the collision happened early on Tuesday morning on state Route 41 in German Township, Ohio.

The juvenile passenger was pronounced deceased at the site. According to the highway patrol, the passenger who sustained “serious, life-threatening” injuries was among the other 23 who were all sent to hospitals. The press report also stated that the school bus driver had minor wounds.

Authorities said a Honda Odyssey crossed the center line and struck a school bus for the Northwestern Local School District. According to the preliminary inquiry, the bus then ran off the road and overturned, the announcement said.

According to the highway patrol, the injuries sustained by the Odyssey’s driver and passenger weren’t life-threatening and were taken to Springfield Regional Medical Center.

Northwestern Local Schools sent a message on Facebook stating, “One of our buses was involved in an injury accident this morning. Information is currently being gathered, and we will let you know as soon as possible.

The school district then posted that the victim was an elementary student and declared that there would be no classes on Wednesday.

β€œWe will have grief counselors available for anyone who needs additional support during this tragedy. The Elementary and the Jr/Sr High will open at 8am for students, staff, and community members who need assistance and want to talk to a mental health specialist,” the postΒ said.

β€œOur hearts and prayers go out to the families that have been impacted by this tragedy,” it added.

The accident is still being looked into.
