No injuries reported in school bus crash
MIDDLECREEK – No injuries were reported after a school bus carrying 10 children was struck by another vehicle Wednesday, Pennsylvania State Police Selinsgrove said.
Police said the 2009 IC school bus driven by Terry Lee Gilbert, 48, of Middleburg, was stopped at the intersection of Smalsh Barricks and East Hollow roads, Middlecreek Township, Snyder County, carrying 10 children ages ranging from 7 to 16 at 6:53 a.m.
According to the report, when the bus was pulling out of the intersection, it was struck in the front driver’s side bumper by a 2004 Chrysler Concorde LXI driven by Brian Lee Bertram, 45, of Lewisburg.
Police said the vehicle driven by Bertram attempted to slow down as it approached the intersection and it skidded into the northbound lane before it struck the school bus.
Police said passengers were not injured and were checked at the scene by the Midd-West school nurse and other school officials. Police said the passengers were then transported on another bus to school.
According to the report, evidence on scene was consistent with Bertram traveling at an unsafe speed and he will be cited for the incident.
