Wednesday Morning Rollover Crash
A rollover crash involving a school bus and two other vehicles sent two Billings teenagers to the hospital this morning. There were reportedly two young children on the bus, but neither was injured, according to Billings police Sgt. Bret Becker. They were transferred to another bus.
The Gazette reports the crash happened at about 7:45 a.m. when a pickup truck headed eastbound on Grand Avenue changed lanes just before the intersection and clipped an eastbound SUV. The 17-year-old Billings girl driving the SUV lost control, entering the westbound traffic lane, where the SUV struck the school bus at the stoplight before knocking over a pole and rolling into the parking lot of the US Bank.
Both the driver of the SUV and her 17-year-old passenger were taken by ambulance to a Billings hospital to be treated for injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening. No other injuries were reported.
