Photograph taken for a story in the Oklahoma City Times newspaper. Caption: "No serious injuries were reported after this bus loaded with school children overturned today. Nine Children Slightly Hurt School Bus Overturns A school bus carrying some 45 children overturned on the Broadway extension near NW 50 this morning, but none of the children was seriously injured. One child, Vanessa Golden, 9, was taken from the scene by ambulance to Mercy Hospital where she was treated and released. Eight others were sent to Baptist Hospital for checking after they arrived at the Quail Creek school nurses. A spokesman at Baptist said none of the children there appeared to be seriously injured. All were later released. The bus owned by School Bus Transportation Co., was carrying first through fourth grade children from the Dewey school attendance area to Quail Creek, where they are assigned for classes under the Finger plan. A spokesman said the children were picked up in the vicinity of NE 30 and Kelly. The bus operated by Sharon Short, 19-year-old Oklahoma City University student, was northbound on Broadway when the accident occurred. Police quoted a witness as saying the right rear tire on the bus blew out and the vehicle started swerving. It struck the center median."
