Police: 1 child, school bus driver killed in crash on Indianapolis' east side
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) ' Indianapolis police say a child and a school bus driver have been killed and two other people critically injured when the bus crashed into a bridge in the city's east side.
Police spokesman Sgt. Anthony Schneider says the bus carrying students from Lighthouse Charter School struck a bridge abutment about 7:45 a.m. Monday. WISH-TV showed the crumpled bus beneath a bridge and surrounded by rescue vehicles.
Schneider describes several other passengers as "the walking wounded." It wasn't immediately clear if two people reported critically injured in the crash were children.
WISH-TV reports (http://bit.ly/y5ySsq ) that as many as 50 children ranging from ages 5 to 16 were on the bus.
Schneider says concerned parents should contact the school.
