HOMESTEAD, Pa. — A school bus was filled with students when it was involved in a crash Thursday morning near the Homestead Grays Bridge in Homestead.
The crash, which left the windshield of the bus shattered, was reported just before 8 a.m. on West Eighth Avenue.
A car and a pickup truck were also involved in the crash. Both of those drivers told Channel 11’s Liz Kilmer they were stopped at a red light when they were hit.
Officials said the bus was heading to Propel Homestead with about 20 students on board.
Some students complained of injuries and were checked out, officials said. There were no serious injuries, and no one needed to be taken to a hospital.
Some students went home with their parents. The rest of the students boarded a van and were taken to school.
Janay Austin-Smith showed up at the scene after her daughter called her.
“My youngest daughter said she hit her head pretty hard off the bus window. That's why I want to look at my kids before I leave or let them back to school. I don't think I even want to let them go back to school because this is like a freak accident and they could be riled up or scared or whatever the case may be,” Austin-Smith said.
The cause of the crash is under investigation.
