None of the students on board the bus was injured.
One person was charged following a three-vehicle crash in Washington County on Tuesday afternoon which involved a school bus.
State Police say Morris Charles Fleming was the driver of a Subaru station wagon which rear-ended a Toyota pickup truck along eastbound Route 68 near Lock Tender Lane in the Hagerstown area. The impact pushed the pickup into to the rear of a school bus. The truck was stopped behind the bus which was letting off students when it was struck.
The operator of the Toyota, Michael J. Adams, was trapped inside his vehicle, and had to be extricated.
He and Fleming were both taken to Meritus Medical Center. The students on the bus, ranging in age from 11 to 14, were not injured.
State Police say Fleming is charged with failure to control speed to avoid a collision. A witness told troopers that Fleming's Subaru did not stop when it came upon the Toyota pickup.
Both lanes of Route 68 were closed while emergency personnel extricated Adams from his truck, and prepared he and Fleming for transport to Meritus Medical Center.
Angela Allen, the Assistant Superintendent of Transportation for Washington County Public Schools, was on the scene to oversee the transfer of the students to another bus.
