Semi Hits School Bus In Stickney

STICKNEY, Ill. (CBS) -- Six elementary-age children were taken to a hospital as a precaution, after a semi-tractor trailer truck hit a school bus in southwest suburban Stickney on Friday.

Stickney police said the call about the crash came in around 7:20 a.m., after a semi and a school bus collided at Pershing Road and Central Avenue.

Six students who were on the bus were taken to MacNeal Hospital in Berwyn, but a hospital representative said the children seemed to be fine.

She said all of the students appeared to be elementary school age, and were deaf, but she did not know what school they attend.

It was raining at the time of the crash, but it was unclear if the weather was a factor in the accident.
