VALLEY SPRINGS, Ark. – A Valley Springs School Bus is involved in a three car accident this morning on Highway 62, near Blythe.
According to the local Highway Police, 38-year-old Michelle Neff from Harrison was traveling eastbound on Highway 62 Monday at about 7:20 a.m. Meanwhile, the Valley Springs School bus number 15 was picking up elementary school children at the intersection of the highway and Harmon Road, facing westbound.
Authorities say Neff rear ended a minivan in the eastbound lane that was stopped, causing the mini-van to hit the bus head on. All seven children on the bus were listed as uninjured.
However, Neff was taken by ambulance to North Arkansas Region Medical Center for unknown injuries, according to the Arkansas Highway Troopers.
