A pickup truck crashed head-on into a Boyle County school bus loaded with students Wednesday afternoon on Wells Landing Road, injuring the truck's driver and shaking up some of the younger students.
"Some of the children were emotional, some were crying, but none of them were injured," said Mike Pittman, the school system's director of pupil personnel, who went to the scene of the accident, which was reported at 3:32 p.m. The bus driver, Dallas Johnson, 59, of Stanford was not injured.
Pittman said 33 students were on the bus when it stopped to drop off a student at 1776 Wells Landing.
The bus had stopped in a "semi-blind curve" in the middle of the narrow road when it was struck head-on by a 2003 Dodge Ram driven by Sherry Herbert, 29, who lives on nearby Stony Point Road, said Boyle Deputy Jody Adams, who investigated.
Herbert suffered a cut on her chin and injured her left leg, Adams said. She was taken to Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center for treatment and then to the Boyle County Detention Center, where she was booked on charges unrelated to the accident.
