Ivymount Students Involved in School Bus Accident
An accident left two students and one aide from Ivymount School with minor injuries.
A school bus accident in the local lanes of I-270 in Rockville on Friday morning caused injury to six people including two students from Ivymount School near Potomac.
The accident, which involved a school bus and two cars, caused injury to the driver of the Montgomery County school bus, an 8 and 9-year-old and a school aide from Ivymount — a special needs school on Seven Locks Road, according to a story on ABC 7.
The two students were transported to Suburban Hospital after sustaining minor injuries. The drivers of each car were also taken to Suburban Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, said Beth Anne Nesselt, a spokesperson for Montgomery County Fire and Rescue.
The accident caused back ups around 8:30 a.m. between Shady Grove and Maryland route 28. Lanes are back open as of 10 a.m. The school bus was drivable following the accident, Nesselt said.
About 12 Montgomery County Fire and Rescue personnel responded to the scene. Maryland State Police will continue to investigate the accident.
