Brighton School Bus Rollover

BRIGHTON, CO (9/27/2019) - A school bus rolled over near E. 136th Ave. and Buckley Road early Wednesday. Six students with special needs were on the bus at the time.

The rollover happened around 8:15 a.m. The six students on the bus, who are part of a program for autistic children, suffered minor injuries as well as two adults on board. All should make a full recovery.

The children were sent to the Children’s Hospital Colorado at the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora. As of 4:45 p.m. all but one of the children has returned home, the 27J school district spokeswoman, Tracy Rudnik, commented. She also noted that many of the students were able to walk off the bus.
