In the early morning of December 8, a black Nissan automobile illegally attempted to pass a school bus on highway 45, and subsequently caused an accident.
Last Thursday morning, the driver of the Nissan wrongfully crossed the double yellow road lines in order to pass the stopped bus that had stalled to pick up a student shortly after 7:30 a.m. The driver's attempt to bypass the bus failed; instead, the Nissan collided with the back of the bus before veering into oncoming traffic where it then hit a tractor trailer on the road.
Immediately after the collision, one student on the bus was transported to a nearby hospital in Monks Corner. All other students remained unharmed, as did the driver of the truck.
It appears that both injuries that resulted from the accident (one student and the 43-year old woman driving the Nissan) were minor. However, the fact that two injuries occurred from a completely preventable accident will not go unnoticed. The driver has been cited and will likely pay the price for her inpatient roadside behaviors.
Unfortunately, this type of reckless behavior is often the cause of accidents and injuries in the area, and throughout the nation for that matter. Even more unfortunate is the fact that many accidents do not end in the same types of minor injuries. In fact, several auto accidents, truck accidents, and the like end in catastrophic disasters that leave victims catastrophically injured or worse.
