A truck slammed into the rear of a school bus that had just picked up a student along a highway, injuring 10 children, three seriously.
The last two rows on the driver’s side of the bus were smashed in by the crash, where three girls who were the most seriously injured were seated. The accident occurred along four-lane U.S. 52 near Lafayette.
The bus went off the side of the road and struck a van and a car sitting in a church parking lot. The truck ended up in the highway’s median, with much of its cab crushed.
