GEORGETOWN, Minn. — Four injured students were taken to a hospital Thursday morning, Oct. 14, after the school bus they were riding was involved in a collision in rural Clay County, according to Sheriff Mark Empting.
The crash happened about 7:29 a.m. when a bus carrying students from the Ada-Borup-West School District collided with a pickup truck that was pulling a trailer, Empting said.

The pickup was northbound on 40th Street North when it collided with the school bus, which was eastbound on 190th Avenue North, he said.
The pickup driver had a yield sign and may have failed to yield to the school bus, Empting said, adding that the sheriff’s office was reviewing video from the bus.
He said the driver of the pickup was taken to the hospital with significant but not life-threatening injuries.
