A Carroll County Schools Bus Driver Seems To Be At Fault For A Collision For The Second Time In The Last Two Weeks.
According To Konswello Monroe with The Georgia Public Safety Public Information Office:
On April 25, a Carroll County School Bus was traveling north on Bar J Road attempting to turn left to travel west onto GA 8. The school bus driver failed to yield the right of way and entered the path of a westbound dump truck. The bus and dump truck struck each other. The bus rotated counterclockwise and struck an eastbound SUV. Both the bus and SUV came to rest on the south side of the road. Minor injuries were reported.
Monroe says these are the preliminary investigative findings, and this crash is still under investigation. She says It will be several days before the final report is ready.
WLBB Radio reported on April 12th, multiple minor injuries were reported after a Carroll County Schools bus collided with a stopped vehicle on the Carrollton Bypass.
At that time, Investigators said a 16-year old passenger on a Carroll County Schools’ bus complained of minor injury after the bus collided with a stopped tractor-trailer.
According to Georgia State Patrol Public Information Director, Lt. Mark Riley: :A tractor trailer (V2) was stopped in traffic on Ga-166 North near Newnan Road. A school bus (V1) was traveling north on Ga-166 North behind V2. The driver of the school bus was following too closely to the tractor trailer and struck it in the rear with the front of the school bus. A 16-year-old passenger on the school bus had a complaint of injury but was not transported. The driver of the school bus suffered a minor laceration on her hand.
