Out-of-control Phoenix school bus causes mile-long accidentby The Associated Press on Jan. 29, 2009, under Education, Local, Special
An out-of-control school bus hit several cars in a mile-long accident scene that injured 25 people in west Phoenix on Wednesday afternoon.
Phoenix police Officer James Holmes says none of the injuries appears to be life-threatening.
He says children are among the 25 injured, but that they weren’t on the school bus.
A total of 13 vehicles including the bus were involved. Everyone injured was taken to a local hospital.
Holmes says it’s unclear why the driver lost control but that he is being interviewed.
Calls to administrators with the Fowler Elementary School District were not immediately returned Wednesday.
