AUGUSTA, Mich. (WOOD) — Multiple people were hurt Friday when two school buses crashed at Galesburg-Augusta Middle School, deputies say.
It happened around 3:25 p.m. A vehicle did not stop at a yield sign, which caused the two buses to suddenly brake and rear-end each other, according to the Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Office. The sheriff’s office said five people were injured.
Galesburg-Augusta Community Schools in a Facebook post said a parent was driving the vehicle.
The district said the students got off the bus and went to the school’s gym to be checked for injuries. Five students were evaluated by first responders and went home, while the driver of the first bus is going to seek medical attention, the school said.
“We appreciate the middle school staff, our drivers, and our local responders for being so quick and efficient in ensuring everyone’s safety prior to taking our children home for the day,” the school said.
