On Tuesday, February 14, 2017, a multi-car collision that involved a school bus occurred in Visalia. The Tulare County vehicle accident happened on Caldwell Avenue, at around 3:26 PM.
The chain-reaction crash took place when a Dodge Challenger was driving at a high rate of speed, headed down on Caldwell Avenue.
At the intersection of Shirk Road, a Ford pickup truck slowed down in front of the sedan. The Dodge smashed into the back of the truck, which then hit a Visalia Unified school bus, carrying 27 students, head-on.
The Ford then burst into flames, and the bus came to rest in a nearby field.
Four students suffered minor injuries and were taken to local hospitals.
The driver of the Ford truck sustained moderate injuries and was taken to Kaweah Delta Medical Center.
No other injuries were reported.
