School bus driver killed, others injured in crash at airport

Police say the driver of a Dodge Ram pickup truck was behind a school bus.

Three Legacy High School coaches who were injured in a bus crash at Denver International Airport Sunday have been identified.

He said between 17 and 20 people on the bus were taken to the hospital for examination, with what he called "different levels of injury".

The cause of the crash remains under investigation, Ferdani said, adding that he did not know why the bus driver turned around to go back toward the airport. Police have not provided an account yet of how the crash happened. Legacy High is located in Broomfield.

The school bus was full of coaches and athletes from Legacy High School's football team.

"He was released from the hospital last night".

Police were investigating the possibility she suffered a medical condition.

As of late Sunday, multiple emergency vehicles were still blocking the terminal's level four ramp as investigators worked to learn what led to the collision. Her age and name have not yet been released by the Denver police, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The Adams 12 School District said in a statement that 15 students were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries, adding that three coaches riding in the front of the bus were hospitalized with serious injuries.

Students are trying to use homecoming week "to work together as a team, school to build a really strong team together", Stockhus said. "Our district mental health team also advises that playing the game is an important and necessary step in the recovery of the community, students and staff".

School officials told The Denver Post that some of this week's homecoming events were being postponed, including a "Powderpuff" football game that was planned for Monday evening.

Legacy High School is in Broomfield, a suburb north of Denver.
