East Peoria Students Uninjured in I-74 School Bus Crash

Jan 12, 2020

Nobody was injured after a school bus transporting East Peoria high school students was involved in a crash Saturday. 

The East Peoria Community High School chess team was headed back from Champaign around 5:45 p.m. when their bus was involved in a crash with another vehicle on Interstate 74 in McLean County, near Downs. 

All 14 people were safe. It's unclear if any tickets were issued. Roads were slick Saturday as rain turned into ice and snow as the day passed. 

The Downs Community Fire Protection District threw the students an impromptu pizza party before they returned home. Local business Papa G's donated the food for the students and first responders.
