West Clark school bus rear-ended, 10 taken to hospitals

MEMPHIS — Officials say 10 children from West Clark Community Schools were taken to hospitals after their school bus was rear-ended by a distracted driver.

West Clark assistant superintendent John Reed said no children were seriously hurt in Tuesday morning’s crash, but several complained of soreness. Ten students were taken to hospitals either in Jeffersonville or Louisville.

Clark County sheriff’s Maj. Chuck Adams said a woman driving a car became distracted while tending to an infant. He says she looked up just before the impact to see that the bus had stopped on a county road near an Interstate 65 interchange at the community of Memphis.

Reed says the bus was carrying 35 kindergarten to high school age students to the Henryville schools.
