A 15 year old boy is recovering at a local hospital after the school bus he was riding in was involved in a crash Friday morning.
It happened in Penrose at the intersection of 13th Street and L Street at 7:00 a.m.
Investigators with State Patrol say the driver of the Fremont County RE-2 school district bus failed to stop at the intersection. It ended up in the path of a pickup truck driven by a 17 year old girl. The truck hit the right rear of the bus, causing the bus to rotate clockwise. The truck also spun out of control.
The 15 year old on the bus was the only reported injury.
It's not clear yet if the bus driver, 39 year old Christine Hollowell, will be ticketed for failing to stop at the posted stop sign.
