Bus Accident in Ohio County Leaves Driver, Monitor, Juvenile Injured

breakingnews surfky 300OHIO COUNTY, Ky. (10/29/13) - The Ohio County Sheriff’s Office was called to an accident involving a school bus on Tuesday at approximately 7:30 a.m. in the 2600 block of US 62 E.

The school bus, occupied by only the driver and a bus monitor, had slowed to stop when a driver of 1966 Ford vehicle hit his brakes and lost control, striking the bus. The Ford vehicle, occupying three juveniles, then slid into a utility pole. Further investigation revealed that the Ford vehicle was racing a 1998 Jeep, also occupying three juveniles, on the way to school.

Speed and the foggy conditions were contributing factors, but neither drugs nor alcohol were involved. The drivers of the two racing vehicles were cited.

The bus monitor was transported to Owensboro Hospital, while the bus driver and a juvenile passenger in the Ford vehicle were transported to the Ohio County Hospital.
