The Latest All kids on crashed school avoid serious injury

A school bus hit a guard rail and went into a ravine east of the Lindbergh exit on westbound I-44 at around 8am Thursday.

The bus driver, whose injuries were described as moderate, was listed as stable at Mercy Hospital St. Louis on Friday.

The Missouri Highway Patrol said one child was ejected through an emergency door when the bus went down the embankment.

The children's ages weren't released. The driver is in stable condition and is expected to make a full recovery. They are being to St. Anthony and St. Clair Hospitals.

The Missouri Highway Patrol told KTVI a white truck and a red vehicle got into an accident ahead of the bus on westbound I-44.

First responders move a driver from a school bus that crashed near Kirkwood, Mo., on Thursday, May 11, 2017.

Nothum said a auto had just passed a pickup truck and was in the far left lane when it struck the concrete median and spun out of control on pavement wet from rain. The bus topped the guardrail and went about 15 feet (5 meters) down the embankment. "It's a blessing", said Leslie Johnson, who was walking to work when he saw the accident. The bus driver was rescued, and the children are off of the bus.

"You have to get the kids off".

Authorities said none of the children suffered life-threatening injuries — mostly scrapes and bruises. Nelson said he carried the child to safety. Paramedics raced to get everyone on the bus to the hospital.

Nothum credits the school bus driver, LaVitta Conrad, 37, for keeping the vehicle upright.

"If it would have flipped over there would have been a lot more injuries or even worse", Nothum said.

"He's doing good", his uncle said.

First responders initially estimated 12 children were on the bus.

Nothum said the driver who caused the accident could face charges or citations, but they have not been filed yet.
