LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A metro police department report on a serious school bus crash last June says a blown-out left front tire caused the crash. However, the report does not say clearly what caused the tire to fail.
A truck driver captured dashcam video of the June crash on I-64 near the Shelby-Jefferson County line.
The Waggener High School students on board were returning from a college visit.
31 of the students were sent to hospitals, along with four adults, for treatment of various injuries.
The police investigation reveals the blow-out caused the driver to lose control, cross two lanes of traffic and crash into a left-hand median wall.
The report also says the tire was 11 years old and manufactured in April 2002, but it does not say clearly what brought about the blow-out. Inspectors determined the front tires used were not retreads, the report said.
The report adds the tire was about one-third worn, and may have sustained wear when it was used on another vehicle, before it was placed on the school bus.
The bus was privately owned and operated by Commonwealth Bus Service of Louisville. WDRB News was not able to reach anyone with the company for comment Monday.
Police are still waiting on the driver's toxicology results.
