Day care van involved in traffic accident

Emergency crews responded to a traffic accident involving a day care van Monday afternoon.

Four ambulances responded to the accident, which occurred at the intersection of Park and Brower near Getwell.

Investigators say a white Ford Focus slammed into the school bus killing the driver of the car and injuring the bus driver and adult monitor aboard.

The children on board the bus were small children with the Norris Little Nooks Day Care located on Lamar.

There were three children on board the bus at the time of the crash and they were all taken to LeBonheur Childrens Medical Center.

They appeared fine. One of the reasons they were safe was due to three ladies from the Duke and Duchess Daycare that's located a few feet away from the crash site.

They heard the collision, ran to the bus and got the children out. "They was crying, one was scared, one almost passed out and I just instantly got them off the bus," says Andrea Rush.
