A collision involving a school bus Friday morning on U.S. 30 left an 18-year-old in critical condition, according to the Van Wert post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
The bus owned by Thomas Edison Schools of the Van Wert County Board of Developmental Disabilities was headed west on U.S. 30 at 7:53 a.m. when it was struck at Ohio 49 North by a 1996 Buick driven by Zechariah C. Price, 18, of Antwerp, the post said.
Price was flown to a Fort Wayne hospital with critical injuries, the post said.
The bus driver, Alice Knueve, 62, of Convoy, and passenger Isaac Smith, a 24-year-old student in a wheelchair, were not hurt. An aide on the bus, 50-year-old Tina Gaskill, was treated for minor injuries, the post said.
The post said Price’s vehicle was southbound on Ohio 49 and failed to yield to the bus at U.S. 30. The crash remains under investigation.
