Wreck involving school bus hurts 2 students, 2 adults

Staff report

Two Graves County students and two adults were injured Monday morning when a car rear-ended a school bus, according to the Graves County Sheriff's Department.

Sheriff's deputies investigated the wreck, about three miles north of Mayfield on Ky. 1241, at 7:15. Mayfield resident Mark Wright, 52, drove into the rear of a Graves school bus that had stopped to load a student, police said.

A witness told police the bus had stopped and a student was about to cross the road to board. The witness said he heard tires screeching and saw the car drive into the rear of the bus.

Transportation Director Jason Riley said the bus - which transports students to Central Elementary School, Graves County Middle School and Graves County High School - was near the beginning of its route and held 12 students.

Wright was taken to Baptist Health Paducah. He was in stable condition at the time of the sheriff's department's report.

In a news release, school officials said the unidentified bus driver was also taken to Baptist Health Paducah.

A 16-year-old Graves County High student was transported to Jackson Purchase Medical Center, and a 9-year-old Central Elementary student was taken to Lourdes hospital. They were treated for minor injuries, according to the sheriff's department.

Graves County Schools spokesman Paul Schaumburg said that, to his knowledge, both students were on board the school bus when the collision took place.

Riley said the elementary student was taken to Lourdes hospital by the child's mother.

Riley said the other students on the bus were loaded onto another school bus and taken to their schools.
