SHAWANO COUNTY, Wis. (WTAQ) - Parents in Green Valley are breathing a sigh of relief, after only minor injuries were suffered in a school bus crash.
Authorities believe a Pulaski school bus backed out of a driveway and struck a car on Hintz Road. Carol Dittman lives near by and checked on the students.
“Several of the kids on the bus of course seeing a familiar face said oh Mrs. Dittman I'm scared, and one or two had hit their head but they were fine,” she said.
One student and a passenger in the car were taken to a hospital to be checked out. The other kids were transferred to another bus. Authorities indicate it looks like the bus driver is to blame.
“Most of the road has been ice covered and slippery, but we believe it's either inattentive backing or not paying attention to the road, but it's still under investigation” said Shawano Sheriff’s Dept. spokesperson Craig Rekoske.
