Westport – School Bus Crash Update
Authorities have released more info regarding last Friday’s bus crash in Westport.
Last Friday morning, a school bus en route to King’s Highway Elementary School was near the intersection of Sylvan Road North and Orchard Hill Road when it veered off the roadway and crashed into several roadside structures, including a traffic sign and a tree. The driver was injured in the crash and had to be extricated by firefighters before he was transported to Norwalk Hospital for treatment. According to the latest update by authorities, twenty students were on the bus at the time of the crash and none of them needed hospitalization. They have since been safely returned to their families. The incident is still under investigation. More updates will be provided as new info becomes available.
As of posting time, there is still no indication that other vehicles were involved in this crash. With or without this factor, investigators will continue to study all available evidence until accountability has been established. Suffice it to say, anyone at fault has to be brought to justice and made liable for their actions.
