Four injured in school bus accident

WONDER LAKE – An accident involving a school bus sent two adults and two children to the hospital Tuesday afternoon, a fire official said.

A car rear-ended a Harrison School District 36 bus about 3:05 p.m. Tuesday at the intersection of East Wonder Lake Road and Spaatz Avenue, said Capt. Chris Weber of the Wonder Lake Fire Protection District.

There were 31 students plus the driver on the bus, he said. The driver of the car had no passengers.

Two of the students, about 10 to 12 years old, and both drivers were taken to Centegra Hospital – McHenry with minor injuries, Weber said.

The Wonder Lake Fire Protection District also received assistance from the Richmond Township and McHenry Township fire protection districts and the Woodstock Fire/Rescue District covered Wonder Lake’s district while it responded to the call.
