Seven people are rushed to the hospital after a car slams into a Tulsa Public School bus, head-on, about 8:30 Monday morning.
The crash took place on a bridge at 42nd Street North and Lewis Avenue. Six of the injured were students on the bus. They were transported to the hospital by EMSA. The seventh person hurt was the driver of the car, that apparently crossed the center line, and hit the on-coming bus.
Tulsa Public Schools spokesman Chris Payne says the students were being transported to the McLain Junior High facility, a little over a mile away.
Sunday church service was held yesterday, as normal, at the Keystone Hills Baptist Church. But that was about the only thing that was normal.

The service yesterday was held in the church's gym.
