Bus Accident Can't Stop Central Florida Field Trip

Comments Off

No Dodgertown Elementary students were injured in a recent bus accident caused by a man with more than ten previous traffic citations. The man was speeding when he caused the multi-vehicle crash. He was cited for careless driving in the wreck.

That was the latest in a series of traffic violations — including two DUI charges — on his Florida driving record, according to state records.

Besides DUI, his traffic record shows citations for speeding, failing to obey traffic signs and not wearing a seatbelt.

In Tuesday’s accident, the initial collision at Beachline Expressway, at County Road 417, was so hard “the back seat (of one car) was now the front seat,” said FHP spokeswoman Trooper Kim Miller.

Summer is here so fewer buses will be on the road. however, drivers should be on the lookout for more children at play.
