2 School Buses Crash on South Side

advertisement

A pair of school buses were involved in a wreck at 76th and Ashland Thursday morning.

At least nine individuals were transported from the scene, and taken to three area hospitals -- Holy Cross, St. Bernard and Little Company of Mary Hospital -- police officials said.

None of the injuries were life threatening

It's unclear how the accident happened, but aerial footage shows one bus pinning a blue pickup truck against a light pole. That bus came to rest at a diagonal angle across the intersection.

The second bus appears to have crashed into a fence that spans a parking lot there. One of the buses was believed to be carrying special needs children.

Investigators are trying to recreate the incident to determine exactly what happened.
