In North Dakota, a school bus crash with four semi-trucks has left one person seriously injured. In addition, the school bus crash happened Friday night on Highway 46 near I-29 when a semi pulled in front of the bus. As a result, the school bus struck the side of the semi’s driver’s side. After the crash, all vehicles stopped on Highway 46. Soon after, another semi hit the first truck that was involved in the accident, which caused the side of the trailer to cut in half. Next, another semi crashed into the back of the second semi.
On the school bus at the time of the semi crash were 34 fourth graders, two teachers, and two other para-professionals. Likewise, the school bus was from the Kindred school, and luckily no students or staff was injured in the semi crash.
Although it is not noted who was injured, it is presumed to be one of the passengers in one of the semi-trucks. The passenger, Jostad was transported to a nearby hospital in serious condition. According to police, fog seemed to play a part in the school bus crash. Furthermore, one semi driver said the school bus came out of the fog and struck their truck. The cause of the school bus crash is now under investigation.
