ARGOS, Ind. (WNDU) - (12/5/2018) - One student has died in a school bus and truck crash on U.S. 31 in rural Indiana.
The crash happened shortly after 9 a.m. on U.S. 31 and 13th Road near Argos. Another student was injured and airlifted to Memorial Hospital in South Bend with non-life threatening injuries. Other students are being treated for complaints of pain.
The northbound lanes of U.S. 31 are closed while the southbound lanes have reopened between 13th and 14th roads. Parents are being asked to reunite with their children at St. Joseph Health System's Plymouth Medical Center.
A total of 39 students were on the bus at the time. A parent told NewsCenter 16 the students were from Winamac Community Middle School, which is part of the Eastern Pulaski Community School Corporation. They were headed to see "Elf the Musical" at the Wagon Wheel Center for the Arts in Warsaw.
The Argos school district neighbors the Tippecanoe Valley school district, where twin boys and their sister died last month when a woman passed a school bus and hit them.
