Peru school bus headed to a field trip gets into a crash

Posted by wlpo on June 1, 2016

A field trip was delayed a bit for a group of first grade students in Peru.

One of two buses carrying Northview Elementary students, staff and parent chaperones was hit by a car Wednesday morning on Route 251 in Peru just north of Interstate 80. Peru Elementary Superintendent Mark Cross says the driver of the car turned into the bus.

Two of 42 students on the bus along with both drivers involved were taken to Illinois Valley Community Hospital in Peru. The students were taken to the hospital as a precaution according to Cross.

Another bus showed up and took the remaining students to their planned field trip at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park in Millbrook.
