LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - A teacher and student remained in the hospital Friday night after a Lafayette School Corporation school bus flipped on Interstate 65.
"I'm absolutely amazed at the outcome of the injuries and the level of seriousness of each one of those injuries," LSC Superintendent, Les Huddle said.
Huddle said Friday, there were still a lot of emotions after Thursday's bus crash.
"You know, you get that phone call and it's very surface news," Huddle explained. "There's been a bus rollover on an interstate and instantly your mind goes to some very negative news and information."
The crash happened around 2 P.M. Thursday near the Boone and Hendricks County line, just south of the I-865 split.
State troopers said the bus was carrying students back from a field trip in Indianapolis when either a box truck or a semi swerved into the same lane, causing the bus to flip in the median.
Five students from the LSC and Tippecanoe School Corporation, and seven adults were taken to two Indianapolis hospitals.
However, a student and teacher were still being treated at the hospital for minor injuries.
But Superintendent Huddle said while most of the injuries were minor cuts and bruises, he's thankful the situation wasn't worse.
"It could have been so much worse that we might have had to discuss other things today but we don't have to do that," Huddle said.
And now as students and teachers return to the classroom to finish up the school year, Huddle said they'll be taking a closer look at their emergency plan in case this was to happen again.
"Early next week, we're all going to have a meeting together and review the entire process and kind of start trouble shooting what did we do and what could we have done better," Huddle explained.
However, Huddle said as they worked to ease some of the emotions today, he was happy to hear some good news.
"One of the neatest, surprising news to me today was two of the students on the bus accident last night, showed up for school today. So we think that is some pretty positive news."
