TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- USD 501 spokesperson Ron Harbaugh said an accident involving a Durham bus was reported at about 8:00 A.M. Wednesday (8/22).
Harbaugh says 20 students were on the bus bound for Scott Magnet School. Harbaugh says the bus was westbound on NE Fairchild Street when it was hit by a car traveling north on NE Quincy Street. Topeka Police told the Topeka Capital-Journal the car had the right-of-way at the intersection of Fairchild and Quincy, and that the bus pulled out from a stop sign, causing the accident. The Topeka Police Department has not returned a phone call from 13 News to confirm who is at fault in the accident.
Students on the bus were asked if they were injured. Harbaugh says nine were evaluated by AMR at the scene, but none were taken to the hospital. Their parents were called.
The parents of all 20 students on the bus will receive a letter informing them of the accident today.
