Bus Crash Investigation Continues | News
Investigators from the Washington State Patrol will be back in Quincy next week, as they continue to gather information about what caused a school bus crash last week.
The bus was carrying 38 student when the driver drifted off the road, overcorrected and rolled the bus. Every student on the bus suffered some type of injury; one student was airlifted to Moses Lake with more serious injuries and another student was taken to Central Washington Hospital in Wenatchee with a critical head injury. All of the students are now out of the hospital. Now, it's up to troopers to talk to them and try to piece together what happened.
Sgt. Jerry Cooper is with the WSP major accident investigation team. He says the bus did not have any mechanical issues and there were no issues with the road or weather that contributed to the accident.
They're hoping the interviews with the students will help them determine what happened. They'll be working with parents to make sure they can get statements without further traumatizing any of the students.
