Updated: Two Students Hurt in Delaware School Bus Crash

Posted: Jun 11, 2018 8:59 AM Updated:

MIDDLETOWN, Del.- Delaware State Police say two students were sent to the hospital with minor injuries after the school bus they were on overturned in Middletown. 

Police said that at around 6:20 a.m. Monday, the bus, operated by Shaneeka S. Comeger, 35, of Wilmington, was traveling northbound on Summit Bridge Road between Old School House and Armstrong Corner roads and was on its way to Newark High School during moderate rush hour traffic on a wet road due to rain.

Police said an unknown vehicle in front of the school bus applied the brakes due to slower moving traffic. Troopers said it was at this time that Comeger attempted to avoid a rear-end collision and swerved to the right and veered off of the road. The bus then struck a ditch before rolling over onto its right side, according to police. 

The two students, a 17-year-boy and a 16-year-old girl, were transported to a local area hospital with minor injuries.

Comeger and a 49-year-old bus aide, from Newark, were not injured in the crash. Comeger was charged with Following A Motor Vehicle Too Closely.

Summit Bridge Road in the area of the crash was impacted for approximately two hours as the crash was investigated and cleared.
