FYI: This afternoon bus 6 was in a traffic accident on Route 28 near A1 Affordable transporting students from RLM. No one was hurt and all students on board and the driver are safe. The accident appears to be the fault of a white pick-up moving into the lane of the oncoming bus. The bus driver swerved to get out of the way of the truck so that there was less of an impact when the truck hit the bus. All children were removed from the bus and kept safe as emergency responders arrived. Principals arrived at the scene immediately and helped comfort the children until a new bus arrived to take them to the Spring Street School. Each child's parents were contacted and are picking their children up at the school after being checked out by the school nurse. I want to thank our #wbwildcats emergency responders, Principals, office staff, Nurse Idell, SRO and Will Lucini for their quick and organized response, and especially Bus driver Mr. Tom for his quick thinking and putting the safety of our students first at all times.
