8 Kids Injured in School Bus Crash

At least eight kids were hospitalized after a school bus was involved in a four-vehicle crash on Lake Shore Drive Saturday afternoon.

Police said the accident took place around 1:23 p.m. at Lake Shore Drive and Balbo Avenue when a school bus traveling southbound on Lake Shore Drive struck a vehicle stopped in traffic.

The vehicle then crashed into the car in front of it and a University of Illinois Chicago police car traveling behind the school bus then rear-ended the bus, according to Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Veejay Zala.

Eight juveniles were taken to Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago with minor injuries, Zala said.

No other injuries were reported in the crash.
