ARGOS, Ind. – A teenager was killed and another student was injured when a truck car collided Wednesday in northern Indiana with a school bus
Indiana State Police identified the driver of the truck as Perry Tylor, 26, of Camby, Ind. The bus driver is Cheryl Warner, 54, of Winamac, Ind.
Toxicological results await bus drivers and lorries. The police said that weather did not believe to have been a factor in the crash.
“As a parent it breaks your heart,” said Bohner.
The Eastern Pulaski Community School Corporation bus carried 38 students and three chaperones on a field trip to see a Christmas music in the nearby city of Warsaw when the crash occurred, state police said.
Other students were taken on another bus to a Plymouth hospital to be evaluated and reunited with their parents. Officials told the CBS Fort Bend affiliate WSBT TV hospital treating 22 of the students.
“It’s terrible,” Vickie Kaczmarek, whose five children went through the school system, told WSBT. “You do not think you see things, you think buses are not going somewhere, but this was a field trip.”
“It’s just cardiac deficiency, heartbreaking for the whole community,” says Michelle Parks, grandmother of children who go to Pulaski. “You are wondering about your own children and grandchildren.”
The crash comes about a month after a 9-year-old girl and her twin-year-old brothersabout 15 miles south of Wednesday’s crash scene. In the October crash a pickup car hit the children in a rural area before the sunrise. The driver has been charged.
