Jessamine school bus and garbage truck collide

Eleven students from East Jessamine High School were taken to the hospital Wednesday morning after a school bus and a garbage truck collided on Sulphur Well Road, said Lu Young, Jessamine County schools superintendent.

Young said she understood students complained of minor injuries, and that all the students were treated and released from St. Joseph-Jessamine RJ Corman Ambulatory Care Center.

Young said the shuttle bus was returning to the high school with students who had taken a morning class at the Jessamine Career and Technology Center.

She said she did not know which driver was at fault in the accident, which is under investigation.

An accident report was not immediately available from the Nicholasville Police Department.
