Home / National News / Students Unharmed After School Bus Plows into House


(BLUE BELL, Pa.) — Nine students were unhurt after a school bus plowed into a home in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania, Tuesday morning, police said.

The students and the bus driver escaped uninjured from a rear emergency exit on the bus, which was bound for Saint Helena School, according to the Whitpain Township Police Department.

The students ranged in age from 5 to 12, according to the school’s principal, Sister Cathe Shoulberg.

The 58-year-old-male bus driver was taken to a nearby hospital to be evaluated, police said in a written statement that did not specify the reason why. The driver may have had a medical issue before the incident, ABC News station WPVI reported.

One person was inside the house at the time of the crash, but he was uninjured, police said.

Police responded to a report of a bus into a residence on Windermere Drive at 7:45 a.m.

The driver is “loved by students and parents” and “they are very concerned about him,” Shoulberg said.

“Students said that he appeared fine this morning,” she added.

The students were examined by the school nurse and deemed to be alright but shocked, Shoulberg said, and they also were taken to the principal office and given soft pretzels.
