Driver Hits Bus Leaving Multiple Alpena Students with Minor Injuries

A bus transporting kids from Alpena Schools was struck by another driver at 7 a.m. on Tuesday.

Owned by Dean Transportation, the bus was stopped on the railroad tracks when the other driver hit them from behind. Three students were brought by ambulance to MyMichigan Medical Center as a precaution, but they only sustained bruising and sore muscles.

AMA ESD Superintendent, Scott Reynolds said in a statement, “We are very thankful that there are no reports of serious injury. We are especially thankful to first responders and the staff of Dean Transportation. They made sure our students were safe and well cared for. Dean Transportation and staff went to the hospital and sat with the children until parents arrived. This is one of the many examples of how they prioritize the physical and emotional well-being of our children.”

The status of the driver in the car is unknown.
