School Bus Accident in Southwest Louisville; Black Ice on I-64

Updated at 10:38 am

A spokesperson for Jefferson County Public Schools says the four students taken to the hospital after this morning’s school bus accident were transported as a precaution.

Another vehicle allegedly ran a red light at Greenbelt Highway and Greenwood Road in southwest Louisville and struck bus No. 9919, which was bound for Frost Middle School. Twelve students were on board and four complained of neck and back pain after the collission. They were taken to the hospital while the rest were taken to school.

The accident has been cleared. Previous reports said 50 students were on the bus at the time of the accident. A JCPS spokeswoman says that number was an estimate, and the bus was only carrying 12 students, as the final pickups had not yet been made.

There are also reports of black ice on Interstate 64 eastbound between 9th Street and 22nd Street. Salt trucks have been called in, but there are a number of accidents.

One Teacher Remains Hospitalized From Last Week’s Bus Accident

Louisville Collegiate School officials say one staff member remains hospitalized in stable condition from last week’s bus accident; all students have been discharged.

A bus carrying 4th grade students was involved in a roll over accident on I-65 last Thursday. All 16 students and three adults were admitted to a hospital in Glascow. Students and staff suffered a range of injuries, including broken bones.

It was previously reported that another vehicle was involved, but it’s unclear what role the vehicle may have played in the accident.

School officials said they are awaiting an official accident report from the Kentucky State Police. They expect it will shed light on the accident’s cause.

Two school buses were transporting the 4th grade class on a field trip to Mammoth Cave. The second bus returned to school after the accident.
