St. Cloud, MN — A collision involving a school bus and a taxi, that sent the bus into a duplex injured four children and the bus driver in southeast St. Cloud Monday morning, May 16, 2011. The school bus crash occurred at about 7:30 p.m. at Lincoln Avenue and 15th Avenue Southeast, reported the St. Cloud TIMES.

According to St. Cloud police, the school bus was heading south on 15th Avenue Southeast and had the right of way, when the eastbound cab on Lincoln Avenue Southeast pulled into the intersection and collided with the school bus.

The impact of the crash caused the bus to cross nearby railroad tracks and slam into a duplex about 50 yards west.

Four children, including at least one child who was riding in the cab, and the bus driver, Kathy Vogt, were injured in the crash. None of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening.

Three people were inside of the duplex at the time and were not injured.

The Guardian school bus, which contracts with the St. Cloud school district, was carrying fewer than 30 students to Talahi Community School when the accident occurred. The uninjured students either walked to school or got rides following the wreck.

The cab driver was cited for failure to yield.

The Red Cross is assisting the duplex residents, who were not allowed back into the building because the crash shifted the building on its foundation.
