LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A number of JCPS middle school students were treated at area hospitals for injuries after their school bus was involved in a minor accident Friday morning.
Ben Jackey, a JCPS spokesperson, said bus 9975 was carrying 48 students headed for Kammerer Middle School and was at U.S. 42 at Lime Kiln Lane around 7:15 a.m. According to Jackey, the bus driver was trying to avoid debris being kicked up by a large commercial vehicle in front of it when the wheels of the bus went off the side of the road.
"A number of children were essentially thrown around in the bus," Dr. Keith Cross said. Cross, along with other Kosair personnel, treated at least 18 children. Thirteen were transported by ambulance while 5 were brought in after their parents picked up the children from Kammerer Middle School.
"Most of them have bumps and bruises, injured knees, shoulders and elbows from being thrown around and from people landing on top of one another. At this point, none of the injuries appear serious or life-threatening," Dr. Cross said.
At the time, the accident was reported as a non-injury crash. After the students were taken on to Kammerer by another bus, MetroSafe began receiving calls from the school at 7315 Westboro Road to check some of the children who were complaining of injuries from the accident.
A Norton Healthcare spokesperson said all of the students taken to the Kosair Children's and Kosair Brownsboro had been treated and released by mid-afternoon.
