LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Indiana State Police said there has been no sign of a white box truck which allegedly swerved into the lane of a Lafayette School Corporation (LSC) bus last month.
The school bus driver told investigators she had to swerve to miss the box truck and that was how the bus ended up flipping into the median of Interstate 65. The box truck never stopped. It happened on May 16 near the Boone and Hendricks counties' border. Twelve people on the bus, including five children, suffered minor injuries as a result of the crash.
The bus was carrying special needs students from LSC and the Tippecanoe School Corporation back to Lafayette from a field trip in Indianapolis.
Trooper Chris Kath with the Indianapolis District Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division said unfortunately, as of June 6, the vehicle nor the driver had been located.
