Child hurt in bus crash: I heard screaming and I saw glass breaking
The bus landed on its side after the crash.
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A child hurt Friday morning when the school bus he was riding in rolled over after being hit by a car talked about what happened in the moments after the accident. Three Butler High School football players were in the car that hit the bus. They were supposed to play in a game at home Friday night against DuPont Manul High School.
"The atmosphere is good," said Butler High School parent, Donna Barry. "Everybody's upbeat. It's a good game."
At the game, people were talking about the nightmare that unfolded Friday morning. Bus #1250 flipped on its side after it crashed with a Ford Mustang at Lower River Road and Moorman Road. Dozens of Frost Middle School students on the bus were taken to area hospitals. The three Butler students in the Mustang were also taken to the hospital.
"It's horrible for all of them. I'm glad all of them made it out alive," Barry said.
During the day at Butler, the incident was on the minds of students. "What was he thinking when he was driving? Was he driving carefully? Was it his or the busses fault?" asked Butler High School student, Dion Walls.
Frost Middle school student, Kevin Barker, 12, was on the bus as it flipped. "I heard screaming and I saw glass breaking. I was like 'whoa, what happened?'" he said.
He said he banged his head and his hand was cut. He was taken to the hospital, but he said he is ok. "I was scared. My friends, they was crying," said Barker.
One of the parents at the Butler football game said she knew one of the students in the car. "One of the football players I do know," Barry said. "Yeah. He's got a couple of broken bones."
Of the crash, Barry said "It's terrible. I hope that they're all going to be ok."
As of Friday night, eight students who were on the bus were staying overnight at Kosair Children's Hospital in downtown Louisville.
