Clark County School Bus Rear-Ended, 10 Taken To Hospital

Last updated on Wednesday, August 14, 2013

(MEMPHIS, IN) - Officials say 10 southern Indiana children were taken to hospitals after their school bus was rear-ended by a distracted driver.

West Clark Community Schools assistant superintendent John Reed tells The Courier-Journal of Louisville, Ky., that no children were seriously hurt in Tuesday morning's crash, but several complained of soreness. Ten students were taken to hospitals either in Jeffersonville or nearby Louisville.

Clark County sheriff's Maj. Chuck Adams tells WHAS-TV a woman driving a car became distracted while tending to an infant. He says she looked up just before the impact to see that the bus had stopped on a county road near an Interstate 65 interchange at the community of Memphis.

Reed says the bus was carrying 35 kindergarten to high school age students to the Henryville schools.
