School Bus Vs SUV Collision
Date: Sun Sep 9 04:08:04 MST 2018
The driver and lone occupant of the SUV, 21-year-old Kyle PARKER of Petawawa, was charged with left turn - fail to afford reasonable opportunity to avoid collision under the Highway Traffic Act (HTA). There were no reported injuries from the involved drivers or passengers on the bus. A replacement bus was used to transport the students to school and the SUV was towed from the scene.
Drivers are reminded that school buses have returned to area roads. All motorists are urged to drive with caution in school zones and in surrounding neighbourhoods due to the increase in pedestrians, cyclists and school buses on the roads. To ensure the safety of students travelling to and from school, members of the Upper Ottawa Valley Detachment of the OPP will be paying extra attention to school zones and taking a zero-tolerance approach towards drivers who disobey school bus safety laws.
