2 Students Injured in Del. School Bus Crash

Posted:

FELTON, Del.- Delaware State Police are investigating an early Thursday morning crash near Felton that involved a car and a school bus loaded with W.T. Chipman Middle School students.

Police said the incident occurred at around 7:48 a.m. as 55-year-old Robert E. Everett of Felton was operating a 2009 IC Corp. school bus eastbound on Burnite Mill Road (SR12) with the right turn signal activated, and preparing to turn right into the parking lot of Moore's Garage just east of Sandtown Road.

Troopers said that meantime, 18-year-old Randi E. Boyd, also of Felton, was operating a 2005 Chevrolet Cavalier eastbound behind another car that was directly behind the school bus when she was unable to slow her vehicle in time and pulled onto the shoulder. The Cavalier continued eastbound on the shoulder before it struck the school bus on the right side, according to police. 

Investigators said two female students who were seated in the last row of the bus, were injured in the crash. The students, ages 13 and 14 respectively, were both transported by EMS to Kent General Hospital in Dover where they were treated for non-life-threatening injuries. Everett, who was properly restrained, was not injured in the crash.

Police said Boyd, who was also properly restrained, was not injured in the crash and was cited for careless driving.

The eastbound lane of SR12 was closed for approximately one hour as the crash was investigated and cleared. A second bus from Chambers was used to transport the remaining students to school.
