Three students injured when buses collide

By Tom Stankard
ST. MARYS - Three students suffered minor injuries when two district school buses collided at the intersection of Spruce and Spring streets late Monday morning.
St. Marys Police Sgt. Brian Christopher said bus No. 18 operated by Sandra Bechtol was stopped at the stop sign. Behind it, Amy Bubp was operating bus No. 26 and did not notice that bus No. 18 had stopped and struck it at a low rate of speed.
Three students suffered minor injuries and possibly sought medical attention, Christopher noted but couldn't confirm.
Bubp was cited for failing to maintain an assured, clear distance, Christopher said.
Both buses sustained minor damage. Bus No 26 reportedly will be put out of service until it is repaired, Christopher said.
Other buses came to the scene to transport the students home, he added.
Neither alcohol nor drugs were believed to be factors in the accident.
