4 children injured when school bus rolls over near Kulm
KULM, N.D. — Four children were injured and taken to Jamestown Regional Medical Center after a school bus rolled over at 5:49 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 4.
The bus was traveling west on Highway 13, three miles north of Kulm and was entering a curve to go south. Weather, which included sleet and freezing rain, likely played a part in the crash, according to officials. Wet, slushy roads caused the bus to lose traction and leave the road, according to a report by the North Dakota Highway Patrol. The bus entered the ditch, where it rolled over and came to rest on its roof. There were seven children, ages 10 to 13, on board. The three children not transported to the Jamestown hospital went home with their families. The bus driver, 46-year-old Kevin Strobel, was not injured.
The crash remains under investigation.
