Bus accident Sunday, one taken to hospital, all others safe

By Adair County Superintendent Dr. Pamela Stephens

April 23, 2023 - at 12:45 a.m. this morning an Adair County Schools bus was involved in an accident in the city limits of Columbia as they returned from a trip to Washington DC. The preliminary reports indicate a private vehicle crossed the center line and struck the bus in the front driver's side.

18 students and 5 adults were on the bus at the time and all were checked for injuries at the scene. One adult was taken to the hospital for treatment of his injuries. All students were released to their parents.

Thanks to Adair County first responders for their quick response to the scene and treatment of our students and staff. Any follow up information will come from the police agencies that worked the accident
