2 Ind. school buses collide; minor injuries seen
McCORDSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — More than two dozen people have been taken to hospitals after a crash involving two school buses east of Indianapolis.
The buses from Mount Vernon Community School Corporation collided shortly after 3 p.m. Tuesday in McCordsville about 15 miles east of Indianapolis.
Indianapolis television stations report at least 25 people suffered minor injuries. WRTV-TV says some students complained of neck pain or nosebleeds.
Witnesses said the chain-reaction crash occurred after a car slowed to turn into a subdivision. The second bus was unable to stop and rear-ended the first bus.
Officials with the Hancock County Sheriff's Department and school district did not immediately return calls seeking comment.
WTHR-TV reports the buses were carrying more than 100 students in grades 5 through 12.
