Illinois school bus driver killed in crash

An Illinois school bus driver was killed in a crash early Thursday morning.

According to Clark County officials, the accident occurred on 8 a.m. when the bus was involved in an accident at the intersection of Route 40 and Route 1. The 55-year-old bus driver died of injuries suffered in an cardiac attack that caused the bus crash.

The students were all checked out by the medical staff before being transported to North Elementary. There were 23 students on the bus ranging from kindergarten to high school aged.

Some of the students were shaken up in the accident and went home with their parents, but there were no serious injuries reported. The superintendent of the school was pleased with how the staff responded to the accident.

Our deepest condolences are with the friends and family of the bus driver at this time.
