The Madison County Sheriff's Office said four people were taken to the hospital after a head-on collision involving a pickup truck and a Madison County School Bus.

Investigators said the collision happened Friday around 3:24 p.m. in the 2400 block of Paint Lick Road near Cartersville Road in southern Madison County.

Investigators said a pickup truck, driven by Brack Morgan, 28, lost control while traveling west on Paint Lick Road and collided with the school bus.

Investigators said wet roads were apparently a factor in the accident.

The Sheriff's Office said the school bus driver, Ruth Culton, 54, was taken to U.K. Hospital.

The school bus aid, Kathie Rhodes, 40, was taken to Saint Joseph Hospital in Berea.

Investigators said the two students on the bus were not injured.

The Sheriff's Office said the pickup truck driver, Brack Morgan and a juvenile passenger, were both taken to U.K. Hospital. 

Investigators said seat belts were in use at the time of the collision.

The accident remains under investigation.
