Tulsa School Bus in Head On Crash


Seven people are rushed to the hospital after a car slams into a Tulsa Public School bus, head-on, about 8:30 Monday morning.

The crash took place on a bridge at  42nd Street North and Lewis Avenue. Six of the injured were students on the bus. They were transported to the hospital by EMSA. The seventh person hurt was the driver of the car, that apparently crossed the center line, and hit the on-coming bus.

Tulsa Public Schools spokesman Chris Payne says the students were being transported to the McLain Junior High facility, a little over a mile away.

He says most of the injuries appear to be minor and non-life threatening.  Tulsa Police are handling the crash investigation.
