Jacksonville School Bus Involved in Accident

An early morning accident Tuesday involving a Jacksonville School Bus, sent 14 people to the hospital

The accident happened around 7 a.m. in front of Nichols Intermediate School, on Loop 456, just West of Highway 69.

Police say six children and three adults were on the bus sitting in the Eastbound lane. The bus was waiting to turn left into the school. That's when a mini-van carrying five adults crashed into the back of the bus.

The van took much of the damage, crashing in the front window and jamming the front two doors shut. Everyone involved was taken to the hospital.

All those on the bus were treated for minor injuries and released from local hospitals. Three passengers in the van had to be treated for cuts, bruises and broken bones. Jacksonville police say inattention may be the cause.
