Three students hurt in school bus accident
|Three students were hurt when the school bus they were riding on was rear-ended early Tuesday morning, Nov. 21, in western Franklin County.
According to a Franklin County Sheriff’s Department press release, a 2003 GMC Yukon operated by Scott Allen Gray, 23, Laurel ran into the back of a school bus driven by Cole Evan Meyers, 21, Laurel.
Meyers had stopped his school bus on the eastbound side of Old U.S. 52 just west of Indiana 121 at 7:22 a.m. Meyers was picking up some students and had stopped the bus. At the time of the accident, Meyers said he was able to activate the amber-colored warning lights but had not had time to switch to the red stop lights or extend the stop arm.
Gray was eastbound on Old U.S. 52 and said he was distracted. That caused him to hit the rear of the school bus, which is a 2018 Blue Bird bus.
Three students between the ages of 14-15 were transported to Fayette Regional Hospital in Connersville by Brookville EMS-2. They were treated for minor injuries sustained in the crash.
FCSD Deputy Donald H. Forsee investigated the accident. He was assisted at the scene by FCSD Major Gregory Mehlbauer, deputy Ryan J. Geiser, Responder 24, Laurel Volunteer Fire Department and the Indiana State Police Motor Carrier Division.
