A school bus full of children overturned after colliding with a minivan in Ohio, killing one child and injuring 23 others, one critically, authorities said.
Ohio State Highway Patrol Trooper Tyler Ross said there were 52 local Northwestern school children and one driver on the bus at the time of the crash shortly after 8 a.m. Tuesday on Route 41 in Lawrenceville.
He said an eastbound minivan entered the westbound bus lane, which turned onto the shoulder but was unable to avoid contact with the minivan and rolled over. A student ejected from the bus was pronounced dead at the scene, he said.
Thirteen children were taken to hospitals by emergency medical personnel and another 10 were taken to hospitals by family members or other personal means. Of the total 23 injuries among those on the bus, 22 were described as not life-threatening and one child was seriously injured and taken to Children's Hospital.
The driver of the minivan and a passenger were taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The school district, where classes were to start today, said a parent reunification center was set up at the nearby German township fire station.
