Most students released after Indiana school bus crash

- Associated Press - Thursday, May 23, 2013

NORTH WEBSTER, Ind. (AP) — A northern Indiana school superintendent says most of the several dozen students hurt in a chain-reaction crash involving four buses have been released from hospitals.

Superintendent Tom Edington says a Wawasee High School sophomore was transferred to a Fort Wayne hospital for further assessment, but her injuries weren't believed to be serious. He says most students suffered bumps and bruises in Wednesday's crash near North Webster, while one student had a broken hand and another broke a collarbone.

The most serious injury was to bus driver John Wagoner, who was flown by helicopter to Parkview Hospital in Fort Wayne. A hospital spokeswoman says he was in fair condition Thursday.

Edington says about two-thirds of the 125 students were evaluated by medical personnel on the scene or at hospitals.
