CLARKSVILLE, Ind. (WDRB) -- Police say the woman driving a school bus involved in a crash with a semi Thursday was not at fault.
Bus number 13-J was taking 11 students to River Valley Middle School when it was involved in a crash with a tractor-trailer on Broadway Street in Clarksville around 7:30 a.m. Two students were taken to Clark Memorial Hospital, and the bus driver was taken to Norton Hospital in Louisville. Both students and the driver were treated and released.
The driver of the semi was also hospitalized with a head injury. No word yet on his condition.
According to a news release from Greater Clark Schools, the bus driver is not directly employed by the school system.
We're told the driver, an employee of the fleet contract owner, has been involved in three incidents during her career that resulted in "non-injury property damage claims," but the news release says investigating officials have indicated that the driver was not at fault Thursday's crash.
We're told the bus driver will not transport Greater Clark students until the investigation is completed.
