February 13, 2019

MILES CITY, Mont. (AP) — An accident involving a school bus in eastern Montana sent seven people to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Matthew Zellers says the injured from the accident that occurred about 8:30 a.m. Wednesday in Miles City were taken to the hospital “mainly as a precaution.”

The Billings Gazette reports that the accident occurred when a sedan struck what a Miles City Fire and Rescue press release described as a “special needs bus” in an uncontrolled intersection.

Zellers said that the driver of the sedan was issued a citation and warnings. The driver’s name was not released.
