School Bus Crash

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Police in Kansas City, Missouri, are investigating a head-on school bus accident in which the district says the roughly two dozen students on the bus escaped serious injuries.

Authorities say a sport utility vehicle hit the Raytown school district bus carrying the high school students shortly after 7 a.m. Wednesday at a curve.

The district’s spokeswoman, Danielle Nixon, says the bus was carrying about 25 students. She says emergency crews checked out the students at the scene, and only minor injuries were reported. A student released to a parent at the scene was taken to a hospital for examination.

The SUV’s driver was taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries not considered life-threatening.
