DECATUR, Alabama - A motorcycle and city school bus crash this morning injured the motorcycle driver and "some of the children on the bus," a Decatur Police Department news release said.

The motorcycle driver, Ronnie J. White, 57, of Moulton, was removed by emergency responders and flown by MedFlight to Huntsville Hospital, police said. A Huntsville Hospital spokesman said Wednesday afternoon that a condition listing for White was not available because he was in surgery.

Some of the children on the bus had minor injuries, police said. Harold R. Sandilands Jr., who was driving the bus, did not appear to be injured, police said.

The wreck happened at about 8:10 a.m. on Sixth Avenue near Gordon Drive, police said. The bus was traveling east on Gordon Drive and turning north on Sixth Avenue, police said. The motorcycle was traveling west on Gordon Drive and was crossing Sixth Avenue, police said.

Emergency responders found the red Harley Davidson motorcycle pinned under the front of the school bus, police said.

Police are investigating.

Hope he is OK, sounds like the bus failed to yield?

I visited with Ronnie yesterday at his home...the Doc's have removed the wire from his jaw & he can now use a walker to get to the bathroom...but they had to remove his knee cap & he can't put any weight on the left leg for another 12 weeks...he is worried that he will not be able to ride again after he gets well...
