The majority of the bus victims were taken to Jewish Hospital Southwest.
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – An accident involving a Ford Mustang and JCPS bus 1250 made for a terrifying Friday morning for the dozens of students on the bus and their parents.
"I saw the car came to us and hit us. Then we flipped over," DaSean Jackson said. The 6th grader was on his way to Frost Middle School when the crash occurred.
On the bus with him was Heavenly Mitchell. "Everybody was crying," she said.
A nurse actually called DaSean Jackson's mother to help calm him down. "Just thank God. I think he is okay. He's got a little pain in his arm, but he can move the arm," Norma Jackson said the nurse told her. I said 'DaSean just thank God you're okay and going to pray for those that worse off, but we were blessed."
It was a chaotic scene as medical personnel arrived and carried all the students by ambulance to five area hospitals. 22 were sent to Jewish Hospital Southwest followed by anxious parents. By mid morning, all the children had a loved one with them.
Thirty-seven were treated and released. Six were taken to Kosair Children's Hospital and five of those victims were admitted. Another child was transferred to Kosair late Friday afternoon.
