30 students on bus at time; driver airlifted to hospital

DAVIE, Fla. – At least one person was injured in a school bus crash Monday afternoon in Davie.

An SUV apparently crashed into the back of a Broward County school bus with Silver Ridge Elementary School students on it near Southwest 73rd Avenue and Griffin Road.

Sky 10 was above the scene of the crash as the driver of the SUV was pulled from the vehicle and placed on a stretcher. He was airlifted to Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood in stable condition.

The view from Sky 10 showed significant damage to the SUV and the back of the bus.

Broward County Public Schools spokeswoman Keyla Concepcion said 30 students were on the bus at the time, but they were not injured. She said all the parents picked up their children from the crash scene, and one requested to have his or her child taken to a hospital as a precaution.

The cause of the crash wasn’t immediately known.
