LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Authorities say a bus of Lincoln students was struck by a minivan driven by a former law enforcement officer who was found to be in possession of more than half a million dollars of suspected drug money.
The Seward County Sheriff’s Office says the crash happened Wednesday afternoon on Interstate 80 near mile marker 388.
They say the sole occupant of the minivan crashed into a bus that was transporting members of the Pius X High School girl’s soccer team to a match in North Platte.
SCSO says the minivan driver, a 62-year-old man from California, is a former law enforcement officer.
Authorities say the man had $570,000 in suspected drug money.
The bus driver, who is not a Pius employee, was taken to Bryan West in Lincoln. All Pius students involved are safe and were not injured, Principal Tom Korta told Channel 8 Eyewitness News.
Authorities are still investigating.
