ELEANOR, W.Va. — Approximately nine elementary school students and a bus driver are being treated after a school bus crash Wednesday morning in Putnam County.

Putnam County Sheriff Bobby Eggleton said the bus driver had a medical episode, lost control, and ran her bus through a fence and into a tree.

“She lost control of her school bus and hit a tree over in Eleanor off of Roosevelt Avenue (Route 62),” said Eggleton.

At least five children was taken from the scene initially and then other children were taken later.

Putnam County Schools said about 25 students, most from George Washington Elementary and Middle Schools, were on board the bus during the incident.

Most of the kids suffered minor injuries but the sheriff’s department is reporting one of the children will have to have surgery for internal injuries that were suffered in the collision. The child is hospitalized in serious condition.

The bus driver was also taken to the hospital suffering from several medical complications.

The students were all elementary school age. Eggleton was unsure to which school they were being transported when the incident occured.

Members of the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department are doing an accident reconstruction as part of the investigation.
