School bus, four vehicles involved in U.S. 19 crash in Largo

LARGO — Nine people were injured in a multivehicle crash involving a school bus on U.S. Highway 19 and Haines Bayshore Road on Monday morning.

No children were on the school bus, according to a Largo Fire Rescue district chief, although two adults were on it at the time of the crash, shortly before 8 a.m. Four other vehicles were involved.

Two people were transported to the hospital, and seven others were treated at the scene or did not want to be transported because their injuries were not life-threatening. The conditions of the patients who were transported were not immediately known.

District Chief Keith Daliendo said the crash appeared to be "some kind of chain reaction."

The crash is still under investigation.
