Daily Times (Primos, PA) - - NEWS - By the Times Staff

FOLCROFT » A 46-year-old mo­tor­cy­clist was killed in a col­li­sion in­volv­ing a South­east Delco school bus early Tues­day, po­lice said.

The mo­tor­cy­clist was iden­ti­fied by po­lice as Steven Matthew Klein, a for­mer Delaware res­i­dent who re­cently moved to Ed­dy­s­tone, Po­lice Sgt. Christo­pher Eis­er­man said. No charges have been filed in the case. The col­li­sion oc­curred at about 6:25 a.m. as the bus was ex­it­ing the school district de­pot in the 300 block of Ch­ester Pike.

“The school bus trav­elled across four lanes of traf­fic … The driver has a pick up (of a stu­dent) on the other side of the street,” Eis­er­man said, not­ing the bus driver was re­port­edly half­way across the road­way when the col­li­sion oc­curred.

The mo­tor­cy­clist, who was trav­el­ing east on Ch­ester Pike, was taken to Mercy Fitzger­ald Med­i­cal Cen­ter where he was pro­nounced dead.

In ad­di­tion to the bus driver, there was one stu­dent and an aide on the bus at the time of the ac­ci­dent. No one else was in­jured in the crash.

The in­ves­ti­ga­tion is con­tin­u­ing, but there are no charges pend­ing at this time against the 66-year-old bus driver, Eis­er­man said late Tues­day af­ter­noon.

“There was no in­di­ca­tion of al­co­hol or drug use,” Eis­er­man said, re­fer­ring to the bus driver. “He sub­mit­ted to a blood test.”
