A Clark County school bus struck two children in a crosswalk on Friday, seriously injuring one.
The crash happened just after 8 a.m. at the intersection of South Eastern Avenue and East Oquendo Road, Las Vegas police said.
Both “middle school age” children were taken to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center — one with serious injuries and one with minor injuries, police said. There were no students on the bus.
The bus driver passed field sobriety tests and did not appear to be injured, police said.
Shortly before the wreck, the bus had dropped off students at Del Sol Academy of the Performing Arts, according to the Clark County School District. The bus driver was en route to pick up Cannon Junior High School students from a bus stop when the accident occurred.
Another bus was dispatched to pick up the Cannon students.
Traffic was shut down on southbound Eastern at Oquendo at midmorning as officers investigated the scene. Clark County School District police also responded.
