BELLEVILLE, Ill. (KMOX) – St. Clair County Sheriff Department deputies say 33 students escaped serious injury when their school bus hit a parking lot power pole on its way back from a field trip.
The accident happened Wednesday at Saint Matthew’s Church in Belleville.
The students are from the MG School District.
Deputies say the power lines knocked down by the crash were not live wires.
They say the 32-year-old bus driver will not be getting any tickets, as the crash happened on a private lot.
