Crash involves bus

Two people were hurt in a three-vehicle crash that involved an Aurora school bus on Monday morning. The incident occurred on Highway ZZ three miles north of Aurora.

According to the Patrol, Ociel Barriga, 41, of Verona, was heading east on Highway ZZ and had stopped his 1993 Nissan Sentra for a school bus that had stopped at Farm Road 1210. Brenda Powell, 61, of Aurora, failed to stop and collided with the Barriga vehicle in her 2002 Mercury Cougar. The collision forced the Barriga car into the school bus, driven by Karen Meagher, 40, of Aurora, which was in the westbound lane. Barriga and Scott Crumm, 16, of Aurora, a passenger in the school bus, were both taken to St. John's Hospital-Aurora and treated for minor injuries. Powell and Meagher were not injured in the crash, which occurred at 7:03 a.m. The Patrol report indicated all three drivers were wearing their seat belts.
