Five hurt in Jefferson City school bus crash



Five adults were hurt on Wednesday afternoon after a car failed to stop at a stop sign on East Capitol Avenue in Jefferson City and hit a school bus.

A Nissan driven by Michael L. Bruso, 36, of Jefferson City, was traveling on Adams Street and did not stop at the stop sign on Capitol Avenue. Bruso then allegedly hit a First Student bus that had three adults on it, according to a news release from the Jefferson City Police Department.

Three people were taken to the hospital with minor or moderate injuries, the release said. However, it was not clear who was taken to the hospital.

The crash affected traffic for about an hour, and both vehicles had to be towed from the scene.

No students were on the bus at the time of the crash, the release said.
