According to information from the St. Clair County Sheriff's Department, St. Jacob Firemen and two ambulances from Highland EMS responded to a call of a school bus in the field at Summerfield and Seger Roads in St. Clair County Tuesday morning. The accident occurred around 7:40 a.m. An ambulance reportedly transported one student, with minor injuries, to St. Joseph's Hospital in Highland. That student was treated for a bump on the head. The bus was from the Lebanon School District and had seven passengers. According to Sgt. Stockett of the Sheriff's Department, the female bus driver was allegedly adjusting her seat belt when the bus allegedly went off the road and into a field. No one else was injured and no damage was reported to the bus. Firemen had reportedly left the scene by 8:40 a.m.

TOLONO UPDATE

 

WGEL Radio spoke with Unit 2 Superintendent Jeff Strieker Monday for an update on the complaint filed with the IHSA concerning cuts to players and a uniform during the final four football game against Tolono Unity.  Strieker said the school is waiting to hear from the IHSA after the formal compliant was registered last week.  It’s unclear how long the IHSA will take to respond to the compliant.  On Tuesday, following the Saturday game, students and a teacher found tongue depressors that were sharpened at the ends and taped together.  In an earlier story, the Tolono coach said these items were used for cleaning mud off of cleats.  Strieker said earlier and reiterated Tuesday that if some players did use these tongue depressors to cut Greenville players, it was not known or endorsed by the Tolono coaches or trainer staff.
