The Pioneer Center confirmed the crash occurred in a statement on its website Thursday.
“Please note, a Pioneer Center bus, with people we serve on board, was involved in an accident this morning in Woodstock,” the statement said. “We thank you greatly for your kind thoughts and prayers.”
The nonprofit’s co-CEO, Sam Tenuto, said the bus was taking individuals with disabilities from one of the Pioneer Center’s group homes in Woodstock to day program services in McHenry.
“Our top priority is to make sure that all of our people that we serve are safe,” Tenuto said.
Tenuto said staff is required to go through an online defensive driving course and “hands-on behind-the-wheel” training.
“We have a very good driving history here at Pioneer,” Tenuto said. “Based on what we’ve seen so far, I don’t see a need to change anything.”
He said that he was working with authorities to understand what exactly happened.
