Two injured when SUV hits Chesterfield school bus
Police: Jeep’s driver may have been intoxicated; 1 hurt in another crash
A student is injured after a Chesterfield County Public Schools bus was hit by a Jeep Friday afternoon, and police say the driver of the SUV may have been intoxicated. A second crash was reported involving a private school bus.
The first crash occurred around 2:30 p.m. Friday at the intersection of Rockdale Road and Lindell Road, near Reams Road and Powhite Parkway, according to Chesterfield police.
The school bus was headed south on Rockdale Road when it was struck on the left side by a Jeep Cherokee that was traveling north on Lindell Road.
“The driver of the Jeep disregarded the stop sign at the intersection,” police said. “At this point, police are investigating the possibility that the driver of the Jeep was intoxicated; the driver of the Jeep is in custody.”
One student, a boy, and the bus driver were transported to the hospital with non-lifethreatening injuries, police said. The investigation is ongoing.
A second bus crash was reported in south Chesterfield County at East Hundred Road and Enon Church Road Friday.
The driver of a private school bus may have run a red light, police said. The bus then struck an SUV, causing the car to roll over.
Police said there were no major injuries but some minor ones. The bus driver was transported to a hospital.
