School bus hit from behind
The state patrol is handling the follow-up of a car-bus crash August 22, in Forest Lake, involving a bus driver from Chisago City and the car driver was from Lindstrom. Forest Lake School District began its 2017-2018 year August 21, earlier than most districts, to be able to let out sooner next spring for construction projects scheduled to get underway.
Authorities report the bus was stopped and 71-year-old Rena Shepard hit the rear of the bus while traveling eastbound, on Hwy 97 at North Shore Trail.
The crash was reported about 3 p.m.
The bus driver, Rawlin Puelen, 47, was not hurt and no other injuries were noted on the bus. Shepard, who was driving a Saturn Vue, sustained some non-life threatening injuries.
