Six patients in stable condition after I-64 bus crash

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Seven people are still in the hospital Wednesday morning after a bus crash on I-64 Tuesday afternoon.

Six patients still remain in stable to fair condition at University Hospital. At Kosair Children's Hospital one person is still being treated with non-life threatening injuries.

The bus involved in the accident, which was carrying students from Waggener High School, crossed over two lanes of traffic and slammed into a concrete medium. There was also a passenger car that spun out which sent one child to the hospital.

30 students and 5 adults were transported to area hospitals with non-life threatening injuries.

Authorities are not yet saying what caused the crash, but witnesses say one of the bus' tires blew.

An E.R. doctor at Kosair Children's Hospital says many of their patients were treated and released the same day of the accident.

The one teenager who remains in Kosair Children's is in the intensive care unit.

JCPS spokesman Ben Jackey tells WDRB News that college trips planned for Wednesday at Bellarmine University and Thursday at Spalding University have been postponed, to wait for all the students to get out of the hospital and be available to do.
