O'FALLON, Mo. _Nine students and one adult were injured in a school bus crash Monday morning in O'Fallon, Missouri. It happened when the driver of an SUV crashed into the back of the bus around 8:30 a.m. at Highway K and Pheasant Meadow Drive.
According to police, four students were taken to the hospital for treatment. One student was taken by her parents and four others were treated at the scene. The driver of the SUV is hospitalized as well.
Authorities say none of the injuries are serious or life-threatening. "Luckily enough the injuries were fairly minor in nature- bumps, bruises, scrapes, that sort of thing- nothing overly significant as far as injuries," said Craig Boschert with the St. Charles County Ambulance District.
Bernard DuBray, the Superintendent of the Fort Zumwalt School District, added, "It`s really unnerving on a Monday morning before you`re trying to the get the week started. But anytime you hear of an accident that a bus is involved you always think the worst and hope for the best."
All 29 students on the bus were en route to Pheasant Point Elementary School.
The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
