Louisville School Bus Crash Injures Waggener High Students 

Louisville School Bus Crash Occurs at Jefferson County Line

Just after 2:30 pm on Tuesday June 11 2013 there was a very serious Louisville school bus Harville Law blog image 1crash that occurred in the westbound lanes on Interstate 64 just past the Shelby County-Jefferson County line.  The school bus was being operated by a local charter company that was bringing Waggener High School students back from a college visit at EKU in Richmond, Kentucky.  JCPS was reportedly notifying parents directly.  There is also a hotline set up for parents to call, (502) 574-2117.

I observed the aftermath of the Louisville school bus crash firsthand.  I was on my way to Shelbyville to file a new lawsuit.  I was in the eastbound lanes and photographed the school bus as I passed it in the photograph above.  The crash occurred around mile marker 22.  I ran into stopped traffic in the eastbound lanes just before 4:00 pm and was delayed by about an hour.  Traffic was backed up almost all the way to the Gene Snyder Freeway at mile marker 19.  There was also a crashed white car in the far left eastbound lane, several yards past the school bus, that had 2 of the 3 eastbound lanes blocked.  As I passed it I couldn’t figure out how it had been involved.

(Needless to say I never made it to the courthouse, which had closed by the time I passed by the crash scene.  I will try again tomorrow.)
