(Sioux City) Sioux City Police say students who pelted a school bus with snowballs Tuesday afternoon caused a crash injuring 21-students.
Police says the accident happened at around 3:05 p.m. in front of West High School. The driver stopped the school bus when it was plastered by the snowballs. The bus was rear ended by a city transit bus that couldn’t get stopped in time.
The buses were carrying students home from West High Schools and West Middle Schools.
The injured students suffered from bumps and bruises. One student was transported to a hospital by ambulance. The bus drivers escaped injury.
School Officials say throwing snowballs violates the district’s code of conduct and that students could be punished.
