Drivers in school bus collision identified
Authorities have identified the drivers involved in the collision of a school bus and a pickup truck in southwest Iowa that injured four, including three students.
The collision occurred around 8:30 a.m. Wednesday at the Sidney Junior/Senior High School. The Fremont County Sheriff's Office says the bus carrying seven students had just left school grounds when the oncoming pickup crossed the center line and hit the bus head on.
The Iowa State Patrol says the student driver of the pickup, Drew Graham of Sidney, was flown to an Omaha, Nebraska, hospital for treatment. Deputies say the bus driver, Dennis Golden, and two boys on the bus were taken to a local hospital as a precaution.
District Superintendent Gregg Cruickshank says classes continued as scheduled Wednesday.
