Utah County school bus crash (Correction)

Friday August 26, 2022

On Friday, Aug. 26, 2022, at about 7:37 am, a Nebo School District school bus was traveling eastbound on US-6 at milepost 151. The bus was occupied by approximately 45 secondary school students and an adult male bus driver. The school bus drifted off the right shoulder of the roadway into the dirt for a short distance, then corrected back to the left and crossed all lanes of US-6. The bus then went off the opposite shoulder and hit a fence before stopping in a field near the roadway.

The driver was transported in fair condition to a local hospital. One student reported a minor injury but was not transported. The rest of the students stated that they were all OK. The cause of the crash is still currently under investigation.

Nebo School District made arrangements to transport the students from the crash location. They have also communicated with parents about this incident. For information regarding the students, please contact the Nebo School District.
