Her passengers 21-year old Victoria Lewis, 27-year old David Christen and 47-year old Steve Capitanich, all of West Point, received minor injuries.

They complained of pain to their backs and legs and were taken to Mark Twain St. Joseph´s Hospital for treatment. The driver was uninjured.

The bus received dents to its left side and front end.
