Hanna Woods Elementary Honors First Responders, Students, Bus Driver

ST. LOUIS (KTRS) Students, faculty, staff of Hanna Woods Elementary School in Ballwin thanked the first responders who rescued 13 of their classmates and the bus driver who were involved in a an accident on I-44 a week ago today. The school held an assembly for those rescue workers as well as the students, the bus driver and the residents of the Meachum Park neighborhood who helped rescue the children.

The school bus was carrying 13 children to Hanna Woods last Thursday morning when a car skidded near the bus and forced it off the interstate and down a 45-degree embankment. The bus driver kept the bus upright as it skidded into trees before stopping. The bus driver, Lavita Conrod, suffered bruises but no broken bones. The driver of the car that nearly collided with her bus has been charged with careless driving.

After the assembly Thursday, the students reunited with Conrod for the first time since the crash. Conrod had been released from the hospital Wednesday.
