No students were injured when a car crashed into the front of a school bus that had stopped to pick up students at Hillside Road and Highland Avenue on Wednesday morning, officials said.
Diane Gibson, transportation director for Oak Ridge Schools, said the driver was picking up two students when she heard a crash and then watched as a car hit the front of Bus 1937 from Willow Brook Elementary School.
“There was nothing she could have done differently,” the schools said in a statement released Wednesday afternoon.
Another driver who was behind the bus witnessed the crash.
“He states that a green Jeep ran through the stop sign and Hillside and Highland, hitting the side of a black car,” Gibson said. “The car then kept going and ran into the front of the bus.”
According to a police officer at the scene, Gibson said, the driver of the car passed out after the impact, and the vehicle continued moving until it hit the front of the bus.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
