5 injured in Md. school bus-car accident

Five people were injured yesterday afternoon when a school bus hit a Dodge Neon that police say failed to yield during a U-turn in Charles County, Maryland, the Maryland Independent reports.

Non-life-threatening injuries were sustained in the crash by the bus driver, an attendant, and a 13-year-old female student with special needs from Benjamin Stoddert Middle School in Waldorf. They were the only occupants of the bus.

The 19-year-old driver and her 20-year-old passenger in the Neon declined medical treatment, according to the report.

Police say the Neon made a U-turn in the area of Bryantown Road and Hunter Hill Place and was struck by the bus traveling northbound on Bryantown Road. The collision caused the bus to leave the road and roll over on its side.

A Charles County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman said the office is conducting an investigation and charges may be filed, depending on the outcome of that investigation.
