Vehicle struck by school bus in Norman County

NORMAN COUNTY, Minn. — An 18-year-old man blew a stop sign and was hit by a school bus Wednesday, Jan. 3, in Norman County, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.

Cody Derek Carlson, of Halstad, Minn., was driving a Chevy Cruze westbound on County Road 21 when at 3:15 p.m. he went through a stop sign where the road intersects with Highway 75, the patrol reported.

When Carlson failed to stop, a school bus driven by 55-year-old David Allan Swenson, of Shelly, Minn., struck the Cruze. Carlson was taken to Sanford Medical Center in Fargo for injuries that were not life-threatening.

The bus reportedly had no passengers at the time of the crash.
