No injuries reported in school bus crash
STEVENSVILLE — No injuries were reported Monday, Sept. 24, when a school bus struck a car at a stop sign on its way to deliver students to Matapeake Middle School.
Clayton Washington Jr., 72, of Gwynn Oak, was attempting to turn Bus 2910 left from Queen Anne Club Drive onto Kenwood Road about 7:52 a.m., but he didn’t have enough clearance to make the turn and struck a 2001 Porsche stopped at the stop sign on Kenwood Road, according to Lauren Moses, public information officer for the Queen Anne’s County Sheriff’s Office.
The driver’s side of the bus right behind the front wheel well struck the front driver’s side corner of a car, according to Sid Pinder, director of operations for Queen Anne’s County Public Schools.
There were 29 middle school students on the bus at the time of the crash, police said.
Administrators from Matapeake Middle School and officials from the school system’s transportation department responded to the scene and parents were notified, Pinder said.
Responders from the Queen Anne’s County Department of Emergency Services determined there were no injuries to the students, he added.
The driver of the Porsche was a 17-year-old boy from Stevenville, who also was uninjured, Moses said. He was the only occupant of the car.
Both vehicles were driven from the scene, police said,
No charges have been filed. Deputy Pete Sackrider is investigating.
