Last Updated: 105 days ago
INDIANAPOLIS - The Lawrence Fire Department said it responded Friday afternoon to a young girl with burns on her legs from a busted anti-freeze line on a school bus.
The Lawrence Fire Department (LFD) said at roughly 3 p.m. Friday, crews were sent to the 7000 block of East 56th Street (near Interstate 465) on a report of a burn injury.
Investigators said a Lawrence Township school bus had been in motion when the driver said she heard a child's scream.
LFD said a 7-year-old girl was burned on her legs when an anti-freeze line on the school bus somehow ruptured and sprayed hot coolant.
LFD said her injuries are not believed to be serious. She was taken to Community Hospital North for treatment and was later released.
Investigators are unsure of what led to the line’s rupture.
Lawrence Township officials declined to comment to RTV6.
