Tuesday around 3 o’clock a 2005 Taurus being driven west on Highway 42 by Maxine Stout failed to stop for the stoplight and was hit broadside by a 2009 International school bus operated by Mark Elliot of Eldon. The school bus was traveling across Highway 42 from the Osage middle school to the high school campus.
Fifteen middle school students that were on the bus were uninjured.
It took fire crews from the Osage Beach Fire Protection District approximately 15 minutes to extricate the Kaiser woman from the Taurus. She was taken to Lake Regional Hospital with moderate injuries.
