Students injured as school bus, pickup crash in Strip District

A school bus and pickup truck were involved in a crash in Pittsburgh’s Strip District Friday, Sept. 28, 2018.

Several students sustained minor injuries after a school bus collided with a pickup truck in the Strip District, a Pittsburgh school district spokeswoman said.

The collision forced the front end of the bus into some bushes on top of a low wall, while the rear of the bus was on the sidewalk, Tribune-Review news partner WPXI reported.

The spokeswoman said seven students were on the bus and were headed to an elementary school. All the students were evaluated at the scene by emergency responders and some students suffered minor injuries, though further details were not immediately available.

Allegheny County 911 said police, fire and EMS units were on scene. The crash was reported around 7 a.m. on Smallman Street, near 11th Street.

It didn’t appear that either driver was injured.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
