Student on Orange County school bus injured in crash
ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – A student was injured Friday morning and a bus driver was ticketed after an Orange County school bus with dozens of students onboard was involved in a crash with another vehicle, officials said.
The crash was reported in the 6900 block of Aloma Avenue near Goldenrod and Forsyth roads. School officials said the bus was cut off while making a turn, but a crash report from the Florida Highway Patrol said otherwise.
The FHP report said the driver of a Mazda was heading west on Aloma Avenue in front of the bus when he slowed down to make a right turn into an apartment complex.
According to the crash report, the bus driver didn't slow down and ran into the back of the Mazda.
Orange County Fire Rescue officials said 46 students were aboard the bus, which was heading to Lakemont Elementary School, and one of them suffered a knee injury. All the students were checked out, but no one was taken to a hospital, officials said.
The students were picked up by another bus and taken to school.
One person in the car also suffered minor injuries, officials said.
