The bus driver, whom he called an angel, “was great with them kids. She did a good job with them kids.”
Hill said he was in the house when he stood up to hear the “BOOM!” and see the car spin after hitting the bus head-on at the intersection of East High Street and Glenn Avenue around 4:30 p.m.
Springfield police Sgt. Michael Curtis said one of the four children on the bus was taken to a hospital with a head injury believed to be non-life threatening.
The woman who was driving the car was said to be in serious condition at Miami Valley Hospital, Curtis said.
Her name was not immediately released.
Hill said he used his shirt to cover the woman’s shoulder, which appeared to be fractured.
Both streets and the intersection remained shut down for the accident investigation, Curtis said.
