41 People Treated for Injuries Following Truck Collision with School Bus

MARSEILLES, Illinois – A collision between a pickup truck and school bus Monday has sent 41 people to area hospitals.

The bus, driven by Diane L. Kelley, 70, of Marseilles, was about to drop off roughly 60 kindergarten through eighth-grade students at Milton Pope School in Marseilles when the accident occurred.

Just after 8 a.m. Monday, a Dodge Dakota pickup truck was heading south on E. 25th Road when it entered the intersection at N. 32nd Road, colliding with the school bus which was going east.

The La Salle County Sheriff’s Office and the La Salle County State’s Attorney’s Office are still investigating the incident and believe the bus rolled 1 1/4 times before coming to a stop on its side.

The driver of the pickup, Michael A. Shelton, 44, of Seneca, was transported to Morris Hospital with injuries and was cited for failing to stop a stop sign.

Thirty-nine students that were on the bus were taken area hospitals for treatment and Kelley was transported to St. Mary’s.

Authorities do not expect any of the injuries to be life-threatening. Twenty-two of the students had already been released from hospital care.

The incident occurred around 9 a.m. when one of the buses that was traveling west on Stringtown Road brushed up against the other school bus that had been traveling east.

According to officials, the roads that the buses were traveling on were hilly and curvy.

After the crash, the parents of the children that were being transported in the buses were called and the students that were not injured were taken to school.
