School bus accident injuries one adult and two children

Posted by wlpo on March 21, 2014

Swerving when there’s an animal in the road might be your gut reaction but it’s not a good response.  A driver and two students were treated for injuries after a school bus went off the road after the driver reportedly swerved to miss a deer.

It happened before school Friday on Route 52 near Prairie Center.  La Salle County Sheriff’s Deputies say Michael Jones, Sr. of Putnam swerved to miss a deer.  The bus went into the ditch, hit a culvert and turned onto its side.  Jones and two students were taken to Mendota Community Hospital with minor injuries.  The students were treated and released.  He was admitted to the hospital. They were on their way to the Lighted Way in La Salle.
