An Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper at the scene said there were some minor non-incapacitating injuries, but all were transported for evaluation. Of the 41 students involved in the crash, 15 sustained injuries, according to reports.

Troopers report bus driver Terrassa Cline, 35, of Jackson Center, was traveling southbound on T.R. 88 just after 4 p.m. when she lost control on the snow and ice covered road prior to the crash. She was cited for failure to control.

Bellefontaine and Indian Lake EMS personnel were on hand at the hospital to assist in the triage of the students. Lakeview Fire Department personnel responded to the crash scene.
