School bus flips in Ontario, 4 suffer serious injuries

By KJ Mullins     Jul 11, 2009 in Travel
A school bus loaded with 21 children flipped upside down on Highway 400 southbound Saturday afternoon in Ontario, Canada. The accident occurred near Bradford. Four of the victims have serious injuries.
Several ambulances are on the scene to take care of the children. It is not clear what group the children are with.
OPP Constable Graham Williamson said the children are all believed to be pre-teens.
Police do not consider any of the injuries to be life-threatening. There are, however, many minor injuries. At least three of the children have serious injuries.
An air rescue helicopter had been called but police have canceled that request.
Update: The school bus driver is also in serious condition and had to be extracted from the bus after it rolled over into a ditch. The cause of the accident is under investigation but it does not appear to have been related to the weather.
Southbound lanes of Highway 400 are closed at Highway 88 with traffic being diverted and joining at Aurora Road.
