One Killed in Illinois School Bus Accident
Police say one person is dead after an accident involving a school bus carrying more than two dozen elementary school students and two other vehicles in northern Illinois.
Authorities said in a press conference that 12 of the students on the school bus were transported to local hospitals in ambulances, while an additional 23 students were loaded onto a bus and taken to hospitals with injuries.
The female bus driver suffered no major injuries, and is speaking with authorities, Lake County Sheriff Mark Curran said in a press conference.
Two passengers in a Jeep Cherokee were also taken to a hospital, while the driver of a Jeep Wrangler was pronounced dead at the scene.
The identification of the driver has not been released, pending notification of the family, Chief Deputy Coroner Orlando Portillo said in a press conference. Portillo did confirm the driver is a male.
