    I was listening to this on the scanner, I am not sure but possible bus or van involved. I know there were adult males with head and back injuries also… so much going on. It seemed as if they did not have enough ambulances and one returned to the scene after taking a patient to Jones memorial.

    I hope they are all going to be ok.
