ARNOLD, Mo. (AP) — The top administrator of a suburban St. Louis school district says 11 students were injured when their school bus was hit from behind by a pickup truck.
Fox School District Superintendent Dianne Brown says the Clyde Hamrick Elementary School students sustained minor injuries and were taken to a hospital for precautionary reasons. Both drivers also were injured in the accident Monday.
