The Denver Post is reporting that several children were taken to the hospital after their school bus crashed Thursday afternoon. The accident happened at around 4:30 p.m. at Colorado Boulevard and 29th Street when the bus and a mini-van collided. Twenty-nine children were on the bus at the time of the collision. Seven of those students were taken to the hospital with minor injuries for observation.
Bus accident statistics are limited; however, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Fatality Analysis Reporting System data for 1993 to 1997 shows that 141 buses were involved in accidents that resulted in the deaths of 21 occupants and injuries to 442 occupants.
