14 Injuries Reported When KC Bus Flips Over
PLATTE CITY, Mo. (AP) -Investigators say slick roads contributed to an accident that caused a Kansas City bus to flip over and slide down an embankment.
Kansas City police say 14 people were injured, 13 on the bus and one in a car. Two people suffered serious but not life-threatening injuries in the accident Wednesday night northwest of Kansas City in Platte County. The others were treated at area hospitals.
Kansas City Police Sgt. Bill Mahoney said a car pulled in front of the bus, which turned hard, clipped the car and flipped at least once as it went down the embankment.
A witness told The Kansas City Star (http://bit.ly/PGO7Gc ) that the car was spinning its tires on wet pavement trying to get out of the bus’ way.
Mahoney said neither driver was impaired.
