Bus Accident Sends 30 Students to Area Hospitals

A “minor collision” between two charter buses on Rockridge Road near Dean Still Road sent Pasco County students to hospitals in Lakeland and Bartow for treatment this morning. An announcement from Pepin Academies said 30 students were taken to hospitals and that no major injuries were reported. But the Florida Highway Patrol said just two students were hospitalized, the Tampa Bay Times noted. The students were on a field trip to Medieval Times in Kissimmee.
