Four people were hurt when a car collided with a bus at U.S. 31 and Old 31, south of Rochester.

The collision happened just after 1 p.m. on Monday, July 5, when a 2008 Gold Cadillac DTS, traveling northbound on Old U.S. 31 and approaching U.S. 31, stopped and crossed the southbound lane entering the crossover.

The car then crossed the northbound lane and hit a 2018 White Ford 15-passenger bus that was also traveling northbound on U.S. 31. The force of the crash caused the bus to flip on its side.

The 18-year-old man, from Macy, Indiana, who was driving the Cadillac, was taken to the hospital for treatment and later released. He was issued a citation for failure to yield.

The driver of the bus, a 64-year-old from Lexington, Kentucky, was taken to the hospital where he was treated and released.

A 17-year-old girl who was a passenger in the bus was taken to the hospital for shoulder and hip pain.

A 17-year-old boy who was also riding on the bus was airlifted to Memorial Hospital in South Bend for treatment.
