MIDVALE, Utah — Approximately 20 children were in after school bus when it rear-ended a car on the highway Saturday afternoon.
Utah Highway Patrol Corporal Gordon told KSL TV that a car dropped debris on Interstate 15 near 8500 South, forcing drivers to avoid the hazards.
Gordon said the school bus didn’t stop quickly and rear-ended a passenger car.
He said the passenger car driver was sent to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, primarily due to precaution. The driver and the children on the school bus had no reported injuries.
Multiple lanes were closed on I-15 for an hour to clean up the debris, tow the bus, and move the kids into a second bus.
