Authorities say two middle school
students are being treated at a hospital in Lee County after the
school bus they were riding in was hit by a dump truck.
Lee County Sheriff's Office spokesman Robert Forrest says the
students and the drivers of both vehicles were taken to area
hospitals with unspecified injuries. But he did not believe the
injuries were life-threatening.
Several other students being transported to Varsity Lakes Middle
School in Lehigh Acres Tuesday morning were treated at the scene
for minor injuries. Lehigh Acres is about 15 miles east of Fort
Forrest said the dump truck ran the red light and hit the
driver's side of the bus when it reached an intersection.
No charges have been filed.
