The screen cap on the right shows just how bad the roads were yesterday. Yesterday when it was sleeting -- not pounding us with snow. That's a Lee's Summit school bus, which slid off the road in what had to have resembled one of those Simpsons' episodes featuring Otto tearing around in the bus and the children screaming for their lives. The Star reported that one person was injured in the crash, which is amazing because I can't remember school buses having seat belts.
KMBC reported 34 middle school students were on the bus, and the injuries included bruises, scrapes and a bloody nose -- and later one person was taken to a hospital for back pain.
This was the second school-bus wreck of the day. The first came at 107th and Bales when a bus slid off the road and hit a utility pole. If that wasn't enough, a
firetruck responding to the scene crashed into the bus. Two people were reportedly injured in that wreck. I can only imagine what today will bring.
