Driver, 3 children suffer minor injuries in Route 51 school van crash
Three children and the driver of a Pittsburgh Public Schools van went to the hospital on Wednesday morning with minor injuries from a crash on Route 51 near Bausman Street.
The children had “very minor” injuries, Pittsburgh police spokeswoman Diane Richard said in an email.
The driver of the school van complained of dizziness. The three children were on their way to Bishop Canevin High School in Oakwood. They were the only students aboard the van when the crash happened, said Ebony Pugh, spokeswoman for Pittsburgh Public Schools. The school van was hit from behind, Pugh said.
Bishop Canevin High School officials declined to comment.
Ambulances took two of the children and the driver to the hospital. A parent of one of the children arrived at the scene and took the third child to the hospital, Richard wrote. The crash occurred at 6:53 a.m.
Another vehicle was involved. No information was available on the condition of the other driver.
The crash is under investigation.
