LAS VEGAS - Five people were injured following an accident involving a school bus on Summerlin Parkway Wednesday morning.
Nevada Highway Patrol says the accident occurred shortly before 8 a.m. A Nissan was traveling eastbound along Summerlin Parkway near Anasazi Drive, when the vehicle crossed the median and moved into the westbound lanes. It collided head-on with a school bus in the westbound lanes.
The driver of the Nissan, a woman in her 40's, was transported to University Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries. Four occupants of the bus (two adults and two teens) were also hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.
It's unclear if drugs or alcohol were a factor. The accident shut down westbound travel along Summerlin Parkway for more than an hour.
Some medical providers say they often deal with Hispanic patients who are afraid to seek medical care. It's hoped the opening of a new medical clinic will change that.
