COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — A school bus carrying at least 10 children was involved in a Friday afternoon crash in South Linden, and some of the children sustained minor injuries, according to the Columbus Division of Police’s Accident Investigation Unit.
A crash was reported at 3:53 p.m. at the intersection of Clinton Street and Hamilton Avenue, after a Ford pickup truck and the bus collided at the intersection.
While emergency dispatchers originally said four people were injured, officers at the scene confirmed that three people sustained injuries that sent them to the hospital.
The pickup truck passenger was transported to Grant Medical Center with serious physical harm injuries, but is expected to survive, Columbus police said. The driver was transported to Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and is listed in stable condition.
One child was also taken to Nationwide Children’s Hospital in stable condition.
Both the bus and truck were in a front yard at the intersection.
It was not clear what school district the bus was from, but NBC4 confirmed it was not a Columbus City Schools bus — the district is on spring break. The side of the bus read “USA Transportation.”
Columbus police are still investigating.
