WELLSTON, Mo. — Police Chief Robert Cossia was badly hurt and one of his officers

The empty bus was southbound on Keinlen Avenue about 6:30 p.m. when it hit the
police car, which was headed east on Martin Luther King Boulevard in Wellston.

Sgt. Ryan Burkhardt of the Missouri Highway Patrol said Cossia sustained
serious head injuries when the bus crashed into the driver's side of the car he
was driving. He and the other officer were taken to Barnes-Jewish Hospital.
