Patrol: Nearly 2 dozen students injured in school bus crash
DUNBAR, Neb. (AP) — The Nebraska State Patrol says nearly two dozen students suffered minor injuries in a crash in southeastern Nebraska.
The patrol says the crash happened shortly before 3 p.m. Wednesday on a rural highway near Dunbar in Otoe County. Investigators say a car was trying to turn south onto Highway 67 when it hit an eastbound school bus carrying 38 fourth-graders and four adults.
Two other school buses traveling with the first picked up the passengers from the crashed bus and took all 42 to a Nebraska City hospital. The patrol says 21 children were injured. The other 17 children and four adults were not injured.
The driver of the car was taken to a hospital in Syracuse with injuries not believed to be life-threatening.
The crash remains under investigation.
