(KMOV) -- Andy Schnurbusch sprang into action when his Geggie Elementary school bus collided head-on with a SUV Thursday morning near Eureka.

Fifth graders are told what to do if their school bus is ever involved in an accident, and Schnurbusch did not hesitate.

After the collission Schnurbusch got out of his seat and helped the bus driver get off the bus.  He believed she needed to be moved first, because the engine compartment of the SUV had caught fire.  Schnurbusch then got the remaining 4 children off the bus.  Those children were in grades 1, 2 and 3.

Schnurbusch may have suffered a broken nose, but he and the other children will be okay.
