A pregnant school bus driver was in labor and two students were taken to hospitals this morning after an accident at the 215 Beltway and Lamb Boulevard in North Las Vegas, according to the Nevada Highway Patrol.

The Clark County School District bus, carrying 51 Legacy High School students, was involved in a sideswipe collision with a tractor-trailer about 6:45 a.m., authorities said.

Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper Loy Hixson said some of the students complained of minor injuries.

Clark County schools spokesman David Roddy said two students were later taken by paramedics to a hospital. The bus driver was transported to the hospital as a precaution because she is eight months pregnant, he said.

The Highway Patrol later reported that the bus driver was in labor at Centennial Hills Hospital.

Hixson said the crash happened as the bus and truck turned left side-by-side.

Another bus was dispatched to take the students to school, Roddy said.

The ramp was closed as officers investigated the crash.
