School Bus Packed With Children Slams Into House In Horrifying Crash
A school bus packed with school boys between the ages of six and 11 rolled down a hill and crashed into a house in a suburb north of New York City Thursday morning, causing serious injuries.
The wreck in Spring Valley occurred after a bus operated by the Jewish Ribnitzer schools struck two parked cars, dragging them over a hill before slamming into a home on Southgate Drive in Spring Valley, according to the Yeshiva World.
Nearly two dozen patients — 21 children and the driver — were extricated from the wreckage, with six taken to the pediatric trauma center at Westchester Medical Center, where two of them were in serious but not life threatening condition, a first responder on the scene told The Post.
“They’re in great medical care right now and we certainly wish them a speedy recovery,” said Rockland Hatzolah EMS captain Josh Hans.
Two other children were being treated at Nyack Hospital and the driver was at Good Samaritan Hospital in Suffren, Hans said.
It was unclear what set off the freakish crash, or if there was an arrest. Ramapo police were leading the investigation, according to Spring Valley authorities.
