School Bus Crash in Missouri Kills Two

Two school buses carrying high school band students to an amusement park were involved in a major wreck with a semi tractor and a third vehicle earlier today. The accident has left two people dead and dozens injured.

From the Associated Press:

Missouri Department of Transportation spokesman Jorma Duran confirmed the two deaths but could not immediately say whether the victims of the Interstate 44 crash about 10 a.m. near Gray Summit, 32 miles west of St. Louis, were riders on the school buses.

Ashley Wiehle, a spokeswoman for SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center in St. Louis, said 36 kids were en route to the hospital. She said they appeared to be in good condition and were going to be examined as a precaution.

Six more children were taken to St. John’s Mercy Medical Center but their injuries and their conditions were not known, hospital spokeswoman Bethany Pope said.

A spokeswoman at St. Clare Health Center in Fenton, Mo., said four other patients were taken there with minor injuries.
