No serious injuries in school bus collision

There were no serious injuries reported following a collision involving a school bus and a water truck

Damage was visible on a school bus involved in a collision with a water truck on Tuesday morning.

There were no serious injuries reported following a collision involving a school bus and a water truck at Highway 11 and 60th Street on Tuesday morning.

Sylvan Lake RCMP responded to the scene at about 7:30 a.m., when witnesses said the water truck, heading west at the time, hit the Red Deer Catholic school bus. The bus was turning north onto 60th Street, and crossed the truck’s path.

The Sylvan Lake Fire Department and Sylvan Lake Municipal Enforcement were also on scene. Both drivers of the vehicle, as well the bus’ only student on board, avoided serious injury, although police say they were “shaken up” by what had happened.

They’re also giving credit to the driver of the water truck, who they say “took evasive action to avoid striking the bus head on, which, as a result, limited the injuries to all persons involved.”

Charges are pending in the incident, which is under investigation.
