An Alton School District bus was involved in a minor traffic accident this morning on Humbert Road in Godfrey. The accident took place around 7:30am when it collided with an SUV as the bus was turning into the Storeyland Subdivision. About six middle school students were on the bus, and none were hurt.
Chris Norman of the Alton School District tells the Big Z he went to the scene to check on the students and all were either released to their parents or went on to school. He says there was an Alton High School student as a passenger in the SUV who also was uninjured. None of the drivers involved were injured, but Norman was not sure if the Madison County Sheriff’s Department would issue any tickets as the accident remains under investigation.
