A school bus crash involving a Greeley-Evans School District bus and a 2015 Ford pickup truck resulted in injuries late Thursday afternoon in Weld County.
Approximately 36 people were on board, with about 20 or so high school students and 1 adult were taken to various hospitals for treatment for minor to severe injuries.
The crash occurred at County Road 49 near County Road 24 3/4 according to a tweet posted by Colorado State Patrol. From a news article posted online by ABC Channel 7, the cause of the crash was due to the driver of the pickup allegedly falling asleep at the wheel and making contact with the school bus after drifting into its lane. The collision caused the school bus to swerve off the road and roll over. This crash remains under investigation at this time.
