Student Killed when Dump Truck Hits School Bus

A dump truck collided with a school bus in northern Kentucky yesterday, killing a student on the bus and sending 12 others to the hospital. The crash occurred along a winding stretch of highway just after 7 am in the rural farming area of Pendleton County, about 40 miles south of Cincinnati.

Pendleton County Sheriff Craig Peoples said, "It is a very crooked road. We have a lot of motorcycle accidents. We have dump trucks turn over at least once a year."

The dump truck was hauling a load of stone from the nearby quarry when it hit the bus. The bus had damage along its driver's side, and all the windows from the center door to the rear of the bus were gone, and the roof was dented. The dump truck flipped after hitting the bus, strewing the load across the highway and a cattle pasture.

The accident occurred near the home of Ronald and Julie Hess who brought the children inside their home after the accident. Mr. Hess's uncle, Richard Hess, blames the narrow roads around the area for the numerous accidents every year. "The road is not wide enough for those trucks," he said. "If we didn't get off the road for them, there would be more accidents." According to Richard Hess, the trucks travel a route of 17 miles from the quarry to the interstate every day.

Standard procedure requires both the dump truck and bus driver to undergo drug and alcohol tests.
