Friday morning , there was a car/ school bus collision at Pioneer Trail and Acorn Road in Chaska. On the school bus were students from the Pioneer Ridge Middle School. The driver of the car and a group of the children were injured. The incident is still under investigation.

Our hope is that everyone injured heals quickly. It also had to be scary for any parent to hear that a school bus is involved. The most resent research indicates that 17,000 children end up in the emergency room each year after being injured on the bus. Hopefully, more consideration will be given to adding seat belts to these buses.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration provides a nice handbook that all children should review and parents should talk to them about. Each of my boys seemed to get something from it. I want to make sure on those days they take the bus they get back safely.
