Brooksville School Bus, Semi Collide; 6 Students Injured

High school students slightly injured

BROOKSVILLE, Fla. (AP) — A school bus and a semitractor-trailer collided in Florida, slightly injuring six high school students.

News outlets report the bus was carrying about 18 students when it crashed Wednesday in Brooksville, about 50 miles (80 kilometers) north of Tampa.

The reports cite the Florida Highway Patrol as saying that a semi hauling toilet paper failed to fully stop at a red light and hit the bus, knocking it over. The students’ injuries were reported as minor.

Hernando County Sheriff Al Nienhuis says the bus was on its way to Hernando High School.

The truck driver was cited for a traffic-signal violation.
