Ollie The Trolley Crashes, Injures 15

Ollie The Trolley, a specialized bus that tours Downtown Omaha, Nebraska, was a participant in a major accident last month.

The crash, which took place on Florence Boulevard and Cass Street, in Omaha, happened when a driver of a Chevy Blazer, driven by Lois Rasmussen, hit the trolley carrying Campfire USA kids on a field trip. 

Most of the children were injured, reports say. And those not hospitalized were shaken up. In all, paramedics took 14 kids and one adult to Creighton University Medical Center.  The hospital has reportedly confirmed that all the children who were taken to the hospital were treated for minor injuries and released.

Ms., Rasmussen was ticketed for not yielding the right-of-way, but has evidently stated that she was stopped when the accident occurred, reports say.

During the investigation, the families of the injured will likely have questions for both the trolley company and the driver of the SUV. Questions need to be addressed by experts.
