School bus crashes into Iowa creek

Posted: Updated:
CLARKE COUNTY (KWWL) -

Several children and an adult went to the hospital yesterday after a school bus crashed into a Clarke County creek.

The bus lost control on a gravel road and slid off into a creek.

First responders say the seven children on the bus escaped from the rear exit. They were checked out at a hospital, along with the driver, who also had minor injuries.

"We can replace a bus. It's just a big yellow machine, but the kids and driver is what's permanent to me," said Clarke County Superintendent Steve Seid. "It's a lucky day, it really is, you never know what outcomes will be."

Rain along the gravel road might have been a factor in the crash.
