    School Bus Accident Kills One Student

    NBC 4

    ARLINGTON, Va-- Fire officials say a student was fatally injured Monday morning after a garbage truck collided with an Arlington County school bus.

    Investigators said the accident happened at 8:45 a.m., at Columbia Pike and Courthouse Road, in front of the Dorchester Apartments.

    Police said Columbia Pike is closed between Walter Reed Drive and Washington Boulevard.

    A red tarp is draped over the front of the school bus and authorities said the accident injured 15 children, including two critical injuries. The injured children were transported to the Virginia Hospital Center in Arlington.

    The driver of the garbage truck was trapped inside of his vehicle and freed about an hour after the accident. He was airlifted to Inova Fairfax Hospital in critical condition.

    The bus was headed to Hoffman-Boston Elementary School.

    Cause?

    Any word (or speculation) on the Cause? From the pictues it looks like the bus is in a normal lane while the garbage truck is off the road.
