3 Dead, 18 Injured in Bus, Semi-truck Crash in U.S. Ohio

Three people were killed and 18 others injured when a semi-truck run into a charter bus carrying high school students in the rear end on a highway in the U.S. state of Ohio on Tuesday, local media reported.

The accident happened shortly before 9 a.m. on Interstate 70 West in Licking County, about 26 miles (42 kilometers) east of Columbus, the capital of Ohio, when the charter bus carrying 57 students and chaperones were heading to an Ohio School Boards Association conference in Columbus. The injured were rushed to hospitals.

Five vehicles were involved in the crash, Licking County Emergency Management Agency Director Sean Grady said. The cause was not immediately known.

Video from the scene showed there was smoke coming from the crash site.

It was the second fatal crash involving high school students on a charter bus this year. In September, a charter bus carrying high school students to a band camp veered off a New York highway, killing two people and injuring several others.
