LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Two high profile school bus accidents in Kentuckiana have safety in the spotlight.

In September, a Jefferson County Public Schools bus flipped over after being T-boned on Lower River Road – more than 50 students were injured.

Then last month, a bus ran off a rural road in Carroll County, flipped and crashed in to a tree. Two preschool students were killed in that crash. .


Now, the WHAS11 I-Team is looking in to just how safe Kentuckiana students are on school buses.

Investigative reporter Adam Walser goes one-on-one with Kentucky’s supervisor of pupil transportation Roy Prince in the first television interview he's done in years.

Adam will find out how JCPS stacks up nationally when it comes to safety - plus what Kentucky is doing to screen and train drivers to keep children safe.

You only see it here on coming up at 6 on WHAS11 News.
