5 hospitalized in Aberdeen school bus crash


ABERDEEN, Wash. -- Three students and a driver were hospitalized after a school bus was struck head-on by another car in Aberdeen Friday morning.

The Aberdeen School District bus was carrying 32 students on its way to Miller Junior High School along Boone Street and was turning east onto Harriman Street when it was struck by a northbound car, according to officials.

Two students on the bus and two in the car were taken to Grays Harbor Community Hospital, Aberdeen police said, while a third student was driven to the hospital by their parent, according to the school district. Their conditions have not been reported.

The other students were taken to school via another bus and were checked out by the school nurse. The school bus driver was shaken, but not injured.

The school is providing counseling should any student need it, said school superintendent Alicia Henderson.

Aberdeen Police are still investigating the crash.
