INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A school bus carrying special-needs students rolled
over Thursday on a highway near Indianapolis, injuring a dozen people
including five children, state police said.
Indiana State Police spokesman Rich Myers said a semi was changing lanes
on Interstate 65 near Zionsville about 2 p.m. Thursday when it cut in
front of the bus. The bus driver tried to avoid a collision and lost
control, and the bus went into the median and rolled over.
Five children and seven adults were hurt, but none of the injuries were
life-threatening, Myers said. Several were hospitalized, and their
conditions weren't immediately known.
The truck that caused the crash did not stop, he said. The truck was
described as either a white box truck or a white semitrailer, he said.
The vague description of the truck made locating it difficult, Myers said.
Lafayette school Superintendent Les Huddle said the bus was returning to
Lafayette from Indianapolis.
