Prince George, B.C. – A collision involving a school bus has closed Highway 97 North in both directions.
Prince George RCMP Corporal Craig Douglass says it occurred just after 3:00 p.m. on 97 North near Jorgenson Road, north of the city and involved a school bus, a pick-up truck and a chip truck.
“This investigation is just beginning; however, it appears the school bus was stopped and off-loading the last student at the time of the collision,” he says. “The student and bus driver were not injured. Other injuries are not known at this time, but do not appear to be life-threatening.”
Douglass says the crash has littered the highway with heavy debris and will be closed until it’s made safe. A detour is available however at Christopher and Old Summit South road
