TOWSON - All but one of the 11 Baltimore County students injured when a car slammed into a school bus Thursday afternoon have been released from area hospitals.

Larry Williams, 16, an 11th-grader at Loyola Blakefield and a passenger in the car, was listed in fair condition at Maryland Shock Trauma Center yesterday. He suffered a broken right leg.

Police were investigating the accident yesterday, said Cpl. Vickie Warehime, a spokeswoman for the county police department.

The 3 p.m. accident closed a section of Charles Street from Towsontown Boulevard to the entrance of Shepard Pratt Hospital.

Other students injured in the accident - including six from Dumbarton Middle School and four from Loyola, a private boys school in Towson - were released from area hospitals Thursday.

All the Dumbarton students returned to school yesterday, said Charles A. Herndon, county schools spokesman.

Herndon said the school bus driver, Bill Stang, 80, was being treated like a hero yesterday.

Parents and students gave him gifts and called out thank-yous along his routes.

Stang was turning left onto Malvern Road when the bus was hit by the car, headed south on Charles Street.

Herndon said Stang "gassed it to try to beat the Mustang."
