School bus hit by car

  • Oct. 29, 2010 6:00 a.m.

The school bus carrrying students from Queen Charlotte Secondary home to Tlell and Port Clements was hit by a car Wednesday afternoon near Miller Creek (Oct. 27). Sgt. Rob Knapton of the Queen Charlotte RCMP detachment said the northbound school bus had stopped to let off passengers when it was hit by a red Honda Civic. The driver, a Queen Charlotte resident, was not able to stop in time and collided with the back of the bus. None of the students on the bus were injured, Sgt. Knapton said. Another school bus picked them up and they continued on their way home. One passenger from the car was taken to hospital by BC Ambulance for examination, he said. Charges are pending for the driver of the car. Sgt. Knapton said the incident is a good reminder to all drivers to make sure they maintain enough distance between themselves and the vehicle in front of them, and to pay attention to what is going on all around. With frost and ice developing on the roads, these precautions are even more important for everyone’s safety, he said.
