DeSoto School Bus Involved in a Wednesday Morning Accident


By: Steve Dodd

The accident occurred Wednesday morning involving DeSoto County School Bus 476 and another vehicle at the intersection of Airways Boulevard and Church Road shortly before 7 a.m. The bus left the roadway and came to rest near a grove of trees.
The bus was on its way to Lewisburg Primary School and had 11 students, a bus aide and driver on board. The Southaven Police and EMS responded and transported the driver and bus aide to a local hospital for evaluation. There were no injuries reported to the students. Two students were taken from the scene by their parents and the remaining students were transported to Lewisburg Primary School on another bus.
There were no charges filed at the scene and the accident is still under investigation. No other information was made available. Our prayers go out to the driver and bus aide for a quick recovery.
