A school bus was involved in a Tuesday crash in Adair County on Tyler Spring Road at Fairfield Road according to state police.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said that a 1986 GMC pickup was southbound when the driver lost control and hit the bus. Officials said there were about 40 players on the bus at the time of the accident and weather was possibly a factor.

No names were released and it is not known if there were any injuries.

Since 2000, 130 school-age pedestrians (younger than 19) have died in school transportation-related crashes according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Over two-thirds (67 percent) were struck by school buses, 6 percent by vehicles functioning as school buses, and 27 percent by other vehicles involved in the crashes.
