A school bus crash in Southern Illinois, sent at least 6 students to the hospital. They complained of back and neck pain after a white Pontiac Grand AM hit the back of the school bus. It happened April 24th on highway 51 about a quarter of a mile north of Mounds.

Eyewitnesses say the driver was an 18 year old male. He walked away from the crash. We're told the students on the bus did not suffer broken bones, and should make quick recoveries.
