Serious injuries reported after crash between bus and SUV near Stayner

Serious injuries reported after crash between bus and SUV near Stayner

Paramedics say 8 people, including 6 children ranging in age from 4 - 15 years old, were taken to hospital with serious injuries and a 10 year old remains in critical condition. OPP investigators have determined the van crossed the centre line and collided with a coach bus carrying students home from a school ski trip.

The crash happened on Friday afternoon along a stretch of the highway, near 27-28 Sideroad.

Police said Clearview Township Fire, Simcoe County Paramedic Services, hospital emergency room staff and members of the community helped in the triage process and helped the OPP in its response to the crash.

One child, a ten-year-old, is in critical condition while all seven other occupants of the vehicle are now in serious but stable condition.

The Clearview fire chief says 41 teenagers, three adults and the driver of the bus were all treated at the scene.

Leon said snow squalls in the area may have had an impact on driving conditions.

Joshua McNamara, public relations officer with Ornge, said helicopters and air ambulances were dispatched after receiving a call just after 2 p.m.

On Friday, Glenn Attridge, president of Attridge Transportation, had said the students were from St. Thomas More Catholic Secondary School in Hamilton and they were returning from a skiing day trip to Blue Mountain when the crash occurred.

He added that the driver was "pretty shook up" after the crash. In total, there were said to be 50 people on the bus, including 47 students.

Local officials in Stayner opened up their town arena to serve as a warming centre for those displaced by the collision while they waited for transportation.
