Friday morning , there was a car/ school bus collision north of Dassel. On the school bus were students from the Dassel Cokato School District. Eight students were injured. The incident is still under investigation. This is the second bus accident in this area of the state this year.

Our sympathy goes out to him and his family. 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.
