Occupants of a special needs school bus from the Lafayette/ Tippecanoe School Corporation, returning from a field trip to the Indianapolis Zoo escaped serious injury after a rollover crash on I-65. Thursday afternoon.  Indiana State Police say preliminary investigation and witness accounts revealed a box truck or white box trailer being pulled by a semi tractor reportedly made an abrupt move, and the 55-year-old bus driver of Lafayette, steered into the grass median to avoid a collision. The bus rolled over and came to rest on the wheels in the median. Troopers say the other vehicle, which did not make contact with the bus, did not stop. All 12 passengers, seven adults and 5 children ranging from kindergarten to fourth grade, were transported to St. Vincent’s and Methodists Hospital where they were treated for non-life threatening injuries. All bus passengers were reported to be wearing restraints.
