JCPS students injured on bus on the way home

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Sixteen JCPS students received minor injuries when their school bus was involved in a minor crash Monday. It happened at Dixie Highway and Harold Avenue around 4:20 p.m.

Police say the driver of bus #0165 slammed on the brakes to avoid a crash between two cars, and that one of those cars sideswiped the bus.

LMPD officials say a witness told them the driver of one of the other vehicles had been drinking.

JCPS spokeswoman Lauren Roberts says the students complained of neck and back pain, and one student apparently suffered an asthma attack.
