Duluth School Bus Driver In Critical Condition After Crash
A school bus filled with children crashed in Duluth’s Kenwood neighborhood around 4 pm Thursday afternoon, leaving the driver in critical condition. None of the students was injured.
Police said the bus lost control when trying to make a turn, went into one yard, crossed the street into another, and hit a tree.
The Duluth School District said the bus was carrying about 27 students from Lowell Elementary. A second school bus came to take the students home.
WDIO in Duluth is reporting that a mechanical problem is to blame for the accident, not the driver of the bus. However, the Duluth Police Department is not confirming that information, saying a cause is yet to be determined.
Along with an investigation, the district said the next steps will include a detailed inspection of the bus.
