Student suffers minor injuries in Riverview school bus crash

RIVERVIEW — An accident involving a school bus left one student with a hurt wrist and minor cuts Friday afternoon, school officials said.

The accident happened about 3:40 p.m. on Balm Boyette Road about a mile north of County Road 672.

There were about 15 children on the bus coming from Newsome High School in Lithia, said Linda Cobbe, a spokeswoman for Hillsborough County Schools.

The injured student's father picked her up at the scene, Cobbe said. And all other students were released to their parents, Hillsborough County sheriff's deputes said.

The accident occurred when the bus went off the road and struck a pole, deputies said. The bus ended up in a drainage ditch with minor damage.

The accident is under investigation and the cause is still unknown, deputies said. No charges have been filed pending the investigation.

The bus was being driven by Janie Korte, 49, of Lithia Springs, deputies said.

Times staff writer Hilary Lehman contributed to this report.
