OTOE COUNTY, Neb. (KOLN/Gray News) - A crash involving a school bus closed the westbound lanes of Highway 2 in Otoe County, Nebraska.
Authorities said the crash Tuesday morning east of Palmyra happened when a pickup truck rear-ended the bus while it was turning north onto a driveway, said Otoe County Sheriff Colin Caudill.
The impact of the crash caused the bus to flip onto its side.
Caudill said nine children between the ages of 5 and 14 and the drivers of both the truck and school bus were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
According to Bryan Health, one patient was admitted and two patients are in triage. All other patients were discharged.
The children on board the bus attended elementary schools in either Palmyra and Bennett, Caudill said.
