Waverly school bus full of kids slams into truck that authorities say stopped in road

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — The Cass County Sheriff’s Office says a Waverly School District bus full of students slammed into a pickup truck on Tuesday.

This happened on 250th Street, south of Highway 34, a little after 3:30 p.m.

Authorities say 53-year-old Douglas Gable was driving southbound when he stopped in the roadway, to replace a dragging chain.

That’s when the school bus hit his truck from behind, according to Sheriff William Brueggemann.

All of the students on the bus were treated and left the scene with their parents.

Gable was given a citation for impeding traffic.
