6 students hurt as bus strikes truck

Six students were injured Wednesday when the school bus they were riding in ran a red light and hit a dump truck, according to the Indiana State Police.

About 10 a.m., a Wawasee school bus was headed west on U.S. 30 when the crash occurred at King Road near Plymouth, police said.

The bus driver, 59-year-old Syracuse resident Patricia S. Myers, apparently did not see the light turn red and struck the dump truck as it turned through the intersection, according to a crash report.

The dump truck was eastbound on U.S. 30 and turned left on a green turn arrow to go north on King Road when the bus struck it on the passenger side, police said.

The truck driver, Scott J. Morrison, 57, of Ora, Indiana, was not injured. Myers reported arm pain, police said.

Six of the 47 students on board the bus reported complaints of pain. They were treated for their injuries at a nearby hospital and released.

Police said the crash remains under investigation.
