Bus and car collide on east side, injuries reported

Investigators say a school bus and a car collided in Lawrence Township on the east side, sending four children to the hospital for evaluation.

It happened Thursday morning near 42nd and Cordell just past Post Road after a car rear-ended the bus, which was from IPS Floro Torrence School 83. An ambulance was called to the scene.

According to Indianapolis Public Schools, four children aboard the bus were taken to Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health after hitting their heads on the seat in front of them. The four students are siblings, the district said. Their injuries do not appear to be serious.

The driver and bus attendant were being evaluated for injuries.

This is the second crash of the morning involving a school bus. Around 7:30 a.m., a car rear-ended a Pike Township bus near 46th and High School Road. No students were hurt in that crash.
