CHURUBUSCO — A bus has reportedly crashed north of Churubusco.
Police and medics were called around 11:15 a.m. Thursday to U.S. 33 and Blue Lake Road north of Churubusco on a report of a crash. Dispatchers would only confirm “there was a bus crash” that involved “multiple vehicles and multiple injuries.”
A Barons Bus coach was left heavily damaged and off the roadway. Another vehicle – a white Lexus small SUV – could be seen on its top on the other side of the roadway. The two appeared to have hit head-on.
A source at the scene told NewsChannel 15 there were 50 patients. Parkview’s Samaritan medical helicopter landed at the scene around 11:45 a.m.
A Barons Bus official would not comment on the crash or say how many people were aboard or where the bus was headed.
U.S. 33 at Blue Lake Road was closed in both directions, officials said.
