The bus “may have been late on the light” as it traveled through the intersection and struck a Jeep Wrangler, Lake County Sheriff Mark Curran said.

Officers are doing urine and blood tests on the bus driver to ensure that he was not impaired. Twenty-four of the students were transported by another school bus to Advocate Condell Medical Center and thirteen children with minor injuries were taken to other local hospitals.
