STERLING HEIGHTS — A Grissom Middle School student was taken to a local hospital for observation after a Warren Consolidated Schools bus was involved in a traffic incident at about 11:30 a.m. Friday, May 27.

The crash happened on 15 Mile Road between Ryan and Dequindre roads, according to district officials. According to information obtained by WCS officials, an SUV hit the bus head-on and the bus driver was not at fault.

“We had one student taken to be observed at Troy Beaumont (Hospital,)” Irvine said, who declined comment on the student’s grade or gender. The other students were taken home via a different bus.

The name of the bus driver was not disclosed, nor was the employee’s years of service with the district. At press time, school officials did not have information on if any charges were filed against the driver.
