ORANGE CITY, Iowa -- A school bus driver was cited after a collision Monday that injured two students and the driver of another vehicle.
According to a press release from the Sioux County Sheriff's Office, at around 3:58 p.m. Monday, the sheriff's office investigated a collision at the intersection of Highway 10 and Hickory Avenue, three miles west of Orange City.
Derek Thompson, 67, of Boone, Iowa, was driving a 2015 Ford Taurus eastbound on Highway 10, when an Orange City Unity Christian High School bus driven by 64-year-old Nyla Harskamp of Orange City drove into the intersection, while heading southbound on Hickory Avenue.
Thompson was taken by ambulance to the Orange City Hospital for treatment of minor injuries, while two of the 11 students on the bus were taken to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
Woodbury County Sheriff Dave Drew said little about the investigation, which centers on a death that occurred at a home that caught fire. The homeowner, David Davenport, died Friday following a stroke, according to his obituary.
Authorities found the 58-year-old woman on the kitchen floor and pronounced dead at the scene. Investigators say she had been using an oxygen machine for medical purposes when an unknown ignition source caused an explosion and fire.
South Dakota Highway Patrol says the 72-year-old man driving the car missed a stop sign and collided with a pickup truck at an intersection. The driver was airlifted to a Sioux Falls hospital, and his two passengers were killed.
All 10 students on the bus and its driver were evaluated, and two students were taken to a hospital out of what school officials say was an abundance of caution. All the injuries were considered minor.
