Grandview emergency services at 2:18 p.m. Wednesday afternoon responded to the west U.S. 71 frontage road at Blue Ridge near Truman Corners shopping center- where a school bus had reportedly struck another vehicle that was knocked "on it's side."
Extrication of the driver from the vehicle knocked on it's side by the bus was necessary.
GFD-EMS and police said there were two minor injuries on the school bus- one was the bus driver.
The bus- according to Grandview authorities- was "Durham" bus company "bus number 29."
The bus was transporting students of the Hickman Mills school district's Junior and Ruskin high schools.
Three ambulances responded- one from the KC-MO FD-EMS service.
GFD-EMS-3 transported the "27-year-old female school bus driver-" said to be "11-weeks pregnant-" with non life-threatening injuries to a Kansas City medical trauma center.
GFD-EMS-1 transported the "85-year-old female driver" of the knocked-over vehicle- the one extricated by GFD crews- with a possible life-threatening head injury to the same hospital.
The driver was reportedly the only occupant of the vehicle.
The third crash injury was-according to a KCFD-EMS report- "a 17-year-old female who was on the (school) bus" who was (of course since busses don't have them) unseatbelted and "thrown from her seat" on the bus.
