Hamden – Multiple Injuries In School Bus Crash
Several people were hospitalized following a collision between a school bus and a car in Hamden yesterday morning.
The early morning crash occurred at the intersection of Lakeview Avenue and Benham Street. At approximately 7:15 a.m., a school bus with five occupants, including the driver, was stopped on Benham and waiting to turn left onto Lakeview. At this point, another vehicle, a car driven by a 30-year-old local resident, lost control of his vehicle and crashed into the front-end of the bus. The driver of the car sustained serious injuries and was taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital for treatment, while his three passengers refused treatment. Two of the bus passengers and the driver were also transported to the same hospital for treatment of various injuries, while two other passengers/students were evaluated and released on-site. Authorities are currently investigating the circumstances surrounding the crash and are asking possible witnesses to contact them as soon as possible.
