Several Injured In NY School Bus, Snow Plow Crash

SAVANNAH, N.Y. – Authorities say a school bus full of elementary school students collided with a snowplow on a central New York road and several people are injured, including an 11-year-old boy and a woman who were taken by helicopter to a hospital.

A spokeswoman at Upstate University Hospital in Syracuse says the boy and woman are being treated in the emergency room.

A 911 emergency dispatcher in Wayne County says the Clyde-Savannah School District bus was full when it collided with the plow around 7:50 a.m. Thursday in the rural town of Savannah, 30 miles west of Syracuse.

The dispatcher says it’s not immediately known how many students were on the bus, but she says eight ambulances and two helicopters were called to the scene.

The school superintendent tells WHAM in Rochester that the bus was carrying elementary school students.
