School bus versus car crash north of Carthage

Missouri Highway Patrol were called to a vehicle accident involving a school bus and a car Thursday afternoon.

MHP PIO Sergeant Mike Watson says at around 3:50 p.m. the school bus was traveling north on County Road 138 (the west side road of I-49) and attempted to turn west onto Kafir Road.  The bus turned into the path of the southbound vehicle.

Sgt. Watson says an estimated 30 kids were on the bus, but neither the bus driver nor students were injured.  One person in the car received minor injuries and refused treatment.  Both vehicles did have to be towed from the scene.

Investigators were still working the scene at last report.
