Troopers were called to Highway 412 Thursday morning in response to reports of a crash involving a Sand Springs school bus.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol initially reported that the driver of the school suffered minor injuries but later confirmed that it was the driver of one of the vehicles. Initially it was believed that just one student was on board but Superintendent Sherry Durkee confirmed later that six secondary students were on the bus. 

The school bus was rear-ended by a speeding vehicle. Supt. Durkee went on to confirm that the students are “in good spirits” and not injured.

Authorities confirmed that two cars in addition to the bus were involved: one vehicle that hit the school bus and another that struck that vehicle. 

The driver of the vehicle that struck the bus was attempting to slow down was transported for injuries but later treated and released.
