About four dozen Millard North High School students who had been involved in a 25-vehicle traffic accident Sunday in Wisconsin were due to arrive back in Omaha on Monday afternoon.
The 49 students, three teachers and 1 chaperone, all of whom were not injured in the pileup Sunday morning in the Milwaukee area, were expected in Omaha around 4 p.m., said Rebecca Kleeman, communications coordinator for Millard Public Schools.
The chartered Arrow bus struck a pickup truck on a slick roadway, she said, and nobody in the pickup was injured. She said she did not know the exact location of the accident. The bus-pickup crash was part of the 25-vehicle pileup, she said.
Kleeman said the Millard North students were on their way home from a DECA event when the crash occurred. Students from Millard West and Millard South High Schools who also attended the DECA event were on separate buses and returned to Omaha safely Sunday.
The Millard North students resumed their trip back to Omaha later Sunday, she said, but stopped part way and spent the night in Rockford, Ill. Kleeman said she didn’t know if a new bus was brought in for the students or they were still in the damaged bus.
