Students Treated For Minor Injuries After Bus Crash

Five students were taken to a Lincoln hospital after the bus they were riding in was rear ended at an intersection in Waverly, Nebraska.

The students were from District 145 in Waverly.

The crash happened just after 8:00 a.m., Tuesday, at the intersection of North 176th Street and Fletcher Avenue.

A Waverly District school bus had stopped at a stop sign at the intersection and was beginning to proceed, when it was struck from behind by a 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix.

The driver of the car told law enforcement she could not see the bus due to dust from the road.

Of the 45 students on the bus, five students ranging in age from 11-14 were transported to St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center in Lincoln with minor injuries.

The driver of the car, Tiffany L. Wiley, 23, Lincoln, was not transported.

She was cited for following too close and no seat belt.

The driver of the school bus, Joel Armstrong, 55, Lincoln, was not injured.
