Some Students Receive Minor Injuries Following School Bus Collision In Carroll County

One was taken an area hospital for treatment.



Woodbine, Md (KM) Three students were injured following a collision between two school buses in Carroll County Wednesday morning.

The Sheriff’s Office says just after 9:00 AM, a bus had stopped to pick up a student in the 5200 block of Braddock Road when it was struck in the rear by another school bus, causing the bus in front to move forward and strike the student who was waiting to board. That student was not hurt.

Three students on one of the buses sustained minor injuries. One was a 16-year-old boy who was transported to an area hospital for treatment.

Authorities say both school buses were transporting about 45 students to South Carroll High School. Parents and school officials were notified. Arrangements were made to pick up students at the scene, and another bus took the remainder of the students to South Carroll High. One of the school buses was towed from the scene.

The Sheriff’s Office says it’s investigating this crash, but slippery road conditions may have contributed to this collision. No citations were issued at the scene.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact Deputy 1st Class Gibbons with the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office at 410-386-5900.
