Dayton Daily News: CLARK COUNTY, OHIO -- Four people are dead following a collision between a tanker truck and a shuttle bus on Interstate 70, Thursday, Jan. 7.

The crash happened just before 1 p.m., after the tanker truck lost control in the westbound lane on I-70 near exit 62 and traveled into the eastbound lane, striking the bus, said Lt. Craig Cvetan of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

Cvetan didn't know how many were hurt or what the nature of those injuries were. The driver of the tanker was not injured, he said.

The shuttle bus was coming from the Creative Learning Workshop, 205 E. Leffel Lane. CLW is a center that provides vocational and rehabilitation services for adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities, according to the center's Web site.

Center officials sent two bus loads of clients home early because of the inclement weather, program coordinator Dawn Trask said. The bus involved in the crash was carrying eight clients and two staffers, she said.

Dana Koster, the center's administrator, was at Springfield Regional Medical Center, High Street Campus, where some injured clients were taken, Trask said.

The tanker was not hauling any fuel, said Cvetan, adding that some of the occupants of the bus were wearing some type of restraints, and others were in wheelchairs, he said.

The fatalities rank among one of the worst in the area.
