One person was injured in a crash involving a Southeast Dubois County School Corporation school bus on Tuesday.
The Dubois County Sheriff's Office said Tuesday that deputies were on the scene of the crash n County Road 400 South around 8:00 a.m.
According to DCSO, a GMC pickup truck was driving west on County Road 400 S. with the school bus traveling eastbound in the opposite lane.
The bus driver told DCSO that he noticed the pickup truck crossing over the center line. The school bus driver then stopped his bus at the right-most part of the roadway but was eventually hit by the pickup truck after it kept drifting into the school bus's lane.
The sheriff's office says the driver of the pickup truck, who was identified as 53-year-old Blake Gutgsell of Birdseye was transported by ambulance to Memorial Hospital in Jasper, then taken by helicopter to St. Vincent Hospital in Evansville for treatment of a head injury.
DCSO says that the cause of Gutgsell's vehicle traveling left-of-center remains unknown at this time, but that drugs/alcohol are not a suspected factor.
The sheriff's office says the school bus driver wasn't injured in the crash, but that $5,000 worth of damage was estimated for the school bus.
