15 Reported Injuries in Pennsylvania School Bus Crash

Local news agencies are reporting that approximately 15 people were injured when a school bus from the Turkeyfoot Area School District in Pennsylvania was involved with a crash with a commercial truck.

Early media reports indicate that some students were airlifted to hospitals while others were reportedly transported to the hospital by ambulance and via school bus. The crash occurred at about 2:45 P.M. EST. This is the second mass casualty school bus crash in the state in the past two years.

Safe Havens International Video produced a school mass casualty event mental health recovery training video featuring Safe Havens Analyst Dr. Sonayia Shepherd last year. 1,000 copies of the video, which won a Telly Award, have been distributed at no cost to Pennsylvania schools to help them prepare for such events.
