Minor injuries Reported After Pickup Hits Bus in Front of School in Simsbury

Some students have minor injuries after a pick up hit a bus at the entrance to Central School in Simsbury Friday morning, according to a notification from the school.

Principal Beth Hennessy sent out a notification saying the truck rear-ended Bus 84 while it was waiting to enter the bus loop and the school nurse was at the scene almost immediately, along with first responders. A few students sustained minor injuries and were treated on site.

The principal’s message said phone calls were made to the parents of all students on the bus, including those who reported no injuries. 

Everyone involved in the crash is safe, school officials said.

Hennessy added that many other students saw the accident, so they might talk about it when they get home.

Police are investigating the crash.
