Posted: Updated:

EASTON, Md.- Maryland State Police say no one was seriously injured after a school bus collided with another vehicle Wednesday night in Talbot County.

Troopers said it happened around 7:56 p.m. Wednesday on westbound Route 50 at Almshouse Road. State police said a Toyota SUV, driven by 23-year-old Panaya Abebe of Rockville, Md., suffered a flat tire and went into the median of Route 50.

Police said Abebe attempted to move the vehicle from the median to the adjacent shoulder. They say Abebe did not have her headlights on when she attempted to cross the highway.

According to troopers, a school bus traveling on Route 50, driven by 76-year-old James Francis Schauber of Warton, Md., was unable to avoid a collision and crashed into the SUV. Police said the collision caused the bus to drive off the highway, onto the shoulder and into a ditch in a field. Troopers said Schauber was able to regain control of the school bus and steered it back onto the shoulder of the westbound lane.

According to police, the bus was transporting the Kent County boys' lacrosse team back home after a game in Salisbury. Troopers said all 29 people on the bus and Abebe were not seriously injured.

Police said an investigation revealed that Abebe was at fault for the collision and faces several charges.

Route 50 was closed in the area of the collision for about an hour as crews investigated and cleared the scene.
