Nebraska authorities say eight students from Battle Creek public schools were taken to hospitals after a school bus collided with a semitrailer at a foggy intersection in Madison County.
The Nebraska State Patrol says the collision occurred around 7:15 a.m. Monday on U.S. Highway 275, four miles west of Norfolk. The patrol says the northbound bus was crossing the highway when it and the westbound truck collided.
Nebraska State Patrol trooper Justin Koch says neither driver saw the other vehicle because of the dense fog.
Both drivers were wearing seat belts and neither were injured.
Ray Spencenbaugh of Faith Regional Health Services in Norfolk says two students suffered serious head injuries and were transferred to Omaha hospitals. He says the other injured students were expected to be treated and released on Monday.
The patrol says the bus was carrying 13 students.
