School bus rear-ended on K-Beach Road

Posted: August 27, 2014 - 8:26pm

Central Emergency Services responders transported two people to Central Peninsula Hospital with non-life threatening injuries following a collision involving two vehicles and a school bus Wednesday afternoon.

The accident occurred at about 2:45 p.m. on Kalifornsky Beach Road and Even Lane.

CES Health and Safety Officer Brad Nelson said the two injured people had been in an SUV involved in the crash. A pickup with a single occupant was also involved.

Megan Peters, Alaska State Troopers spokesperson, said it appears that one of the vehicles rear-ended the other vehicle, which then rear-ended the school bus.

Nelson said about 29 kids were riding the bus at the time of the accident. He is unsure if the bus was stopped to drop off students at the time of the accident.

Crews briefly shutdown the highway to clear the scene and prepare patients for transport.

Peters said troopers were still on scene at 3:25 p.m.

Nelson said there was debris on the road and the pickup and SUV looked like they would need to be towed away due to damages. The bus appeared drivable, but he was unsure if it continued on its route or what school it was from.
