An Archbold school bus, which was stopped on US20A to pick up students, was struck from behind by another vehicle, Monday morning, Sept. 14.
Fulton County sheriff dispatchers were notified of the crash at 7:36 am, and dispatched Archbold Rescue to the crash scene.
Aaron Rex, superintendent, said paramedics from ALS-1 checked each student at the scene. Two were sent to the Fulton County Health Center via ambulance for further examination.
“All ended up being fine,” Rex said.
At least two persons from the other vehicle were transported to FCHC.
Rex said he called the parents of the 20 students who were on the bus at the time. Many of those parents drove to the scene.
Some students were taken by their parents to school. Only one student opted to stay home for the rest of the day.
Rex said a second bus was dispatched to the crash scene. Some students remained on scene for as many as 45 minutes before being taken to school.
Rex said the Ohio State Highway Patrol will investigate the crash.
He said bus drivers do a pre-trip inspection each morning before starting on their routes. If any of the vehicle warning lights are not working, they are repaired before the bus goes out on the road.
Further information on this incident will be posted as it becomes available.-corrected 9.14, 10:46 pm
