**THIS MATERIAL TO NOT BE REBROADCAST IN THE INDIANAPOLIS TV MARKET**[Notes:March 12, 2012][Notes:WRTV][Notes:Indianapolis]A school bus making its morning rounds collided with a bridge in Indianapolis Monday, killing one child and the driver and critically injuring two other students, police said. Police spokesman Sgt. Anthony Schneider said the bus carrying students to Indianapolis Lighthouse Charter School struck a bridge abutment about 7:45 a.m. Monday. One side of the bus was peeled back in the collision. Indianapolis Fire Department Capt. Rita Burris said the male driver and a female student believed to be 5 or 6 years old were killed. Two male students were critically injured and were taken to Indianapolis hospitals along with eight others whom Burris characterized as "walking wounded." WISH-TV reported that one of the injured was a child whom emergency crews had to rescue from under the front wheel of the bus. Burris said fire department crews spent about 45 minutes extricating four people from the bus. About 50 children ages 5 to 16 were on the bus at the time of the crash, Burris said. The uninjured students were taken to the school about two miles away. Burris said witnesses saw nothing unusual before the driver's side of the bus struck the concrete pillar of the old railroad bridge. The pavement was wet Monday, but she did not know whether it had been raining at the time of the crash.(****END****) ANCHOR VOICE: -------------------------VIDEO PRODUCER: ---------------------------VIDEO SOURCE: WRTV-----------------------VIDEO APPROVAL: ----------------------------VIDEO RESTRICTIONS: ----------------------------------MARKET EMBARGO (S): Indianapolis--------------------------------SCRIPT/WIRE SOURCE:------------------------------------
