Crash involving band bus kills 1, injures 9

Posted: Updated:

A car and a bus carrying band members from Oakland High School collided near Cedars of Lebanon State Park today, killing one person and hurting nine others.

None of the people injured are said to be very seriously hurt. 

The school bus driver suffered broken legs.  Her fellow bus drivers said she is an experienced driver who did everything right in this situation.

"Holly done everything that she could possibly do. She sacrificed herself for her children.  I've heard that from everybody here," said Patty Banks.

The driver of the SUV that collided with the bus was killed.

That person's name is Mike Henry.

State police believe Henry was at fault because his vehicle crossed into the other lane.

Police are conducting an autopsy to determine more about how this happened.  They are looking into every possibility, including intoxication.
