According to police, Moore failed to yield the right of way upon making the turn and traveled into the path of a northbound Chevrolet Suburban being operated by Amy R. Connelly, 39, of Harrington. Troopers said Connelly attempted to swerve to the right to avoid the RAV4, but struck the small SUV on the front right corner. 

Both SUVs then continued in an easterly direction where the RAV4 for struck the front of a school bus that was stopped at the traffic light traveling westbound on Killens Pond Road, according to police.
