School bus - generic

Nearly two dozen students were injured when their school bus crashed with a Ford Fusion on Wednesday afternoon near Dunbar in Otoe County, the Nebraska State Patrol said.

Two other school buses traveling with the first picked up the passengers from the crashed bus and took all 42 to a Nebraska City hospital. The patrol says 21 children were injured. The other 17 children and four adults were not injured.

The driver of the car, an adult woman, was taken to a Syracuse hospital with injuries that were not  believed to be life-threatening.

The crash occurred around 2:45 p.m. at the intersection of Nebraska 2 and Nebraska 67. The westbound Ford attempted a left turn onto Nebraska 67, but struck the Nebraska City Public Schools bus traveling in the opposite direction.
