Omaha, Neb. — Fourteen students and a school bus driver escaped serious injury when a collision with a utility lift truck sent their bus through a fence and down a hill into an electrical substation area in northwest Omaha.
Police say the children, ages 5 to 8, and the bus driver were taken to hospitals as a precaution after the Wednesday afternoon crash.
The children attend Adams Elementary.
Witnesses say the bus driver managed to keep the bus upright and avoided colliding with high-voltage equipment.
