School bus with children on board crashes, no injuries

BEAVERTON, Ore. - A school bus that was taking about a dozen sixth-graders home after school crashed because of the slick roads Thursday.

No one was hurt.

Washington County Sheriff's Office spokesman Sgt. Bob Ray said the bus was driving on Southwest 189th and Bany Road just after 4 p.m. when it slid sideways as it was going down the hill and crashed into a parked car, causing significant damage.

While he said no one was injured, one parent took the parent's child to the hospital because of knee pain.

The road was closed for 2.5 hours.

Meanwhile, school buses in the Beaverton School District took it slow to get children home safe, according to the Beaverton School District. That meant some children would arrive home late.

Spokeswoman Maureen Wheeler said the middle schools got out the latest, 1:40 p.m.
