LaVitta Conrad, 14 Injured in St. Louis, MO, School Bus Accident on I-44

St. Louis, MO -- May 11, 2017, at least 15 people were injured after an accident where a school bus crashed off the side of I-44.

Authorities from the Missouri State Highway Patrol were called out to the scene of the accident at approximately 8:00 a.m. on the western end of the city.

Police officials reported that a school bus, driven by 37-year-old Conrad, was traveling along westbound I-44 transporting around 13 children to Hanna Woods Elementary. As they did so, two vehicles in front of the bus got into an accident. In an attempt to avoid a collision, the bus lost control, struck the median, and swerved to the right. The bus then crashed through the guardrail and down an embankment.

Emergency services were called out to the scene where 12 of the students on the bus were transported to hospitals for treatment. One child was said to have moderate but non-critical injuries, while the others had minor injuries. Three other people, including Conrad who had to be extricated from the wreckage, were taken to hospitals as well with unspecified but non-life-threatening injuries.

Police did not report any charges or citations being filed in relation to either accident. No further details are currently available.
