Head-on School Bus Crash Sends 14 to Hospital
No Serious Injuries
The head of a nonprofit says none of the children aboard a bus taking them to a Head Start program was seriously hurt when a car crashed head-on into the bus.
The State Patrol says it happened around 7 a.m. Monday east of Granite Falls when a car going west on U.S. Highway 212 crossed the center line and hit the bus, which carried 11 children and three adults.
While everyone on the bus was taken to hospitals to be checked, Jason Carlson, CEO of the Tri-Valley Opportunity Council, says all were released right away except for one child who was held until 1 p.m.
Carlson says all of the children were from migrant families and were on their way to a Head Start program in Danube when it happened.
