Bus hit wall at raceway, driver knocked from his seat with passengers on board
EAGLE - Cass County Sheriff William Brueggemann reports a bus crash at Eagle Raceway on Friday night.
Sheriff’s deputies located a school bus taking part of Eagle Hollow Haunts, in the middle of the raceway with front left damage.
The bus driver, 57-year-old Mikel Jones of Lincoln, was driving as part of the attraction, but took a turn too close and struck the wall.
A sheriff’s office press release says that the impact with the wall jarred Jones from his seat. He was able to get back to the seat in an attempt to stop the bus.
One of the passengers on the bus, a 17-year-old juvenile from Omaha, was also injured.
Eagle Fire and Rescue transported both to St. Elizabeth Hospital in Lincoln, NE.
