WABC News reports the accident occurred on Route 207 near Little Britain and Beattie Roads. Reports state a total of three vehicles were involved in the crash: the elementary school bus, a landscaping truck, and another car.
Two people sustained serious injuries and a child suffered critical injuries. The six-year-old girl, who was seated closest to the bus driver, was trapped on the bus after the wreck. Seven other children who were passengers on the bus were quickly transported to St. Luke’s Hospital with minor injuries.
The 74-year-old bus driver, Andrew Sanchez, and the 25-year-old landscaper driver, Ian Jennings, were also hospitalized.
An official cause of crash has yet to be determined. Orange County Executive Steve Neuhaus describes this incident as being one of the worst bus crashes he’s ever seen, yet he remains hopeful for speedy recoveries of all parties involved.
