A two-vehicle crash involving a Gloucester County Public School bus took place early Monday afternoon on Short Lane, according to Sgt. Michelle Anaya of the Virginia State Police.
An investigation revealed that the school bus was attempting to make a left-hand turn onto Short Lane from the parking lot of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at around 12:50 p.m. The bus pulled into the path of a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee, driven by a 16-year-old female of Gloucester.
The school bus was loaded with 28 children, ranging in ages 11-14 years; eight children were evaluated, and three children were transported to Riverside Walter Reed Hospital.
The 55-year-old bus driver was charged with failure to yield. Neither alcohol nor speed were contributing factors in the crash, the VSP reported. The driver of the Jeep Cherokee was not injured in the crash.
