Two hurt in school bus crash

Monday morning's stormy weather may have lead to a school bus crash that sent two people to the hospital.

Fire officials say the cause of the crash isn't clear at this time, but New Circle Road was slick when the bus driver lost control at the Georgetown Road exit. The bus slammed into the center concrete barrier on New Circle Road before ending up across the lanes of traffic, with the cab of the bus stuck in the ditch near the exit ramp.

No children were on the bus at the time. The driver had just dropped off students at Leestown Middle School and was returning to the bus garage. The driver and monitor were taken to UK Hospital with what fire officials say did not appear to be life threatening injuries.

Traffic on New Circle Road was backed up for about an hour Monday morning while crews worked the crash scene. The bus was removed shortly after 10am.
