Just 10 miles from their destination, during a day set aside for a field trip to Mammoth Cave, a bus load of students was injured on a crash on I-65. The wreck happened just before 10 a.m. Thursday on a slick, wet section of I-65 near the Cave City exit. Louisville Collegiate School officials tell us emergency crews treated 16 kids, just nine and ten-years-old, along with two teachers and a bus driver.
"I do know that there were some significant injuries that involved broken bones," says Elizabeth Post with Louisville Collegiate.
The bus driver told Kentucky State Police a tractor trailer, trying to pass, hit the bus and sent it rolling down an embankment. Investigators didn't find any signs of a collision, and now think the bus driver may have swerved in order to avoid hitting the truck. Slick, wet roads most likely played a role in the wreck. State police say no one had life-threatening injuries.
