SHONGALOO — Two people are dead following a head on collision with a Webster Parish school bus Wednesday.

Webster Parish Sheriff Gary Sexton says all the children on the school bus are safe, and while the two occupants of the car were killed on impact, there were no injuries to the children.
“We were really fortunate (about the student’s safety),” he said. “There were no stitches or anything with those kids. It was a violent impact and that old school bus held up well.”

He says the crash occurred around 3:30 p.m. just after the bus left Shongaloo transporting 47 children in grades
