Two Job Corps students injured in Kansas bus accident remain in hospital

MANHATTAN, Kan. | Two of the 18 people injured when a charter bus carrying Job Corps students was hit by a tractor-trailer remain hospitalized.

One of the 15 people taken to Mercy Hospital Regional Medical Center in Manhattan after Monday's accident remained hospitalized there Tuesday in good condition, said spokeswoman Jana Broadbent.

A second person in that group was transferred to Stormont-Vail Regional Medical Center in Topeka and is in critical condition.

Three others who were taken to Irwin Army Community Hospital at Fort Riley were treated and released, spokeswoman Lisa Medrano said.

The bus was making a legal U-turn Monday afternoon west of Manhattan when it was hit from behind by the truck, police said.

The charter bus was carrying students from the Flint Hills Job Corps Center back to Manhattan after a trip to Kansas City.
