Late yesterday , a bus with first grade students from Arcola Elementary School was coming back from a field trip on Route 133 west of Arcola, when the bus was struck by a vehicle head on. Around forty students and ten adults were on the bus when the accident occurred. Several students and adults that were on the bus have been treated by medical professionals and everyone seems to be doing well. Reported injuries include scratches, bruises, scrapes, muscle soreness and a broken bone. The school will have counselors available at school today to support the students and any family members in coping with the incident. The bus driver, from Gould Bus Service, reacted quickly to the car and her actions prevented more serious injuries from occurring. In addition, school personnel and emergency response professionals were quick to scene and implemented emergency response protocols in an attempt to provide order to a chaotic situation.
