Two school buses carrying high school band students to a Six Flags amusement park crashed with a tractor-trailer truck on Interstate 44 near Gray Summit, Missouri Thursday. The freeway crash killed two people and injured dozens.
Missouri Department of Transportation spokesman Jorma Duran confirmed the two deaths, but did not say whether the victims of the Interstate 44 crash near Gray Summit, 32 miles west of St. Louis, were riders on the school buses.
Ashley Wiehle, a spokeswoman for SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center in St. Louis, said 36 kids were en route to the hospital. The children appeared to be in good condition and were going to be examined as a precaution.
The school buses were carrying St. James High School (Missouri) band students to the Six Flags amusement park roughly 10 miles from the crash scene.CLEAR SKIES?  Weather Data for Thursday, August 5th, 2010
