GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - Only one of 10 injured students taken to Altru Hospital in Grand Forks after a fatal collision involving a Larimore school bus and a freight train remains there.

Altru says six patients have now been discharged, including two more on Wednesday. Three other injured students were transferred earlier, but officials haven’t said where.

The crash at a crossing outside Larimore Monday afternoon killed 62-year-old bus driver Max Danner and 17-year-old student Cassidy Sandstrom, and injured 12 other students. Authorities are still investigating what happened.

Superintendent Roger Abbe says the school district has brought in 10 extra counselors to help students and staff cope with the tragedy. He says, “We’re on the right track to getting things back to normal.”

The school was resuming sporting events Thursday night, weather permitting.
