CSW BREAKING: Crash Involving School Bus in Grandview MO

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.

Her injuries were fairly minor and she too was transported to the same hospital.

Research Med Center's (that hospital) emergency room was "closed to trauma" patients shortly after receiving this third crash patient.

Other news media reported a total of three students were on the bus at the time of the wreck.
