South Carroll Bus Collision

Amanda Swank, Editor-in-Chief

On Wednesday, January 9th, Carroll County Public Schools opened 2 hours late after snowfall on Tuesday. An unexpected snow squall delayed buses and unfortunately contributed to a South Carroll bus accident in Woodbine.

Bus 199 was stopped to pick up students on Braddock Road when Bus 399 rear-ended the former at around 9am. Three students were injured in the crash, with one pedestrian student being hit by Bus 199, sustaining no injuries. Authorities suspect that the poor weather conditions contributed to the crash.

Another bus arrived at the scene to bring the students to school, as neither of the buses were drive-able. The rest of the buses made it to school safely, however some were very late in picking up students.
