Spring Valley Police

It’s a parent’s worst nightmare.  A school bus carrying more than 30 elementary students was involved in a wreck in Spring Valley.

Police and paramedics were called at around 7:30 Friday morning for a bus colliding with a car at the intersection of Minnesota and Power Streets.  Thirty-two JFK Elementary students were on the bus but were all okay.  They were all put on a different bus and went on to school.  Their driver, Dennis Matz of Mendota was ticketed for failing to yield. 

The other driver was Jeanette Smith of Spring Valley.  Both drivers weren’t hurt.
