For the second time in less than a week a school bus driver has been charged in St. Thomas.
Police responded to a collision between a school bus and a car in the intersection of Fairview Street and Elm Street around 8:45 a.m. Monday
Investigators say the crash happened when the bus travelling eastbound on Elm made a left hand turn onto Fairview in front of an oncoming car travelling westbound. The driver of the car was taken to St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Police didn’t say if any students were on the bus at the time of the crash but didn’t report any other injuries.
A 41-year-old woman has been charged by police with a left turn violation under the Highway Traffic Act.
The incident comes days after a 60-year-old man was charged following a collision last Thursday afternoon.
In that case, police say the school bus driver lost control of the vehicle during a turn in the area of Isabel and Victoria Streets. The front of the bus hit a hydro pole and a parked vehicle.
There were six kids on the bus at the time of the collision but no injuries were reported.
The school bus driver was charged with careless driving.
