Ford Escape Runs Red Light And Crashes Into School Bus

This accident was part of a bizarre Henrico County morning a couple of weeks back, where two school buses were hit in the span of roughly 20 minutes.

The first crash took place just before 8 AM as reported by ABC News, when a school bus carrying approximately 30 students was rear-ended by a pick-up truck on Creighton Road and Hunters Run Drive. Thankfully, there weren’t any major injuries reported.

Then came this crash, which saw a black Ford Escape crossover run a red light and impact a school bus in the middle of an intersection. According to NBC12, the bus was headed to Hermitage High School and had 18 students on board.

One of those students had to be taken to the hospital with minor injuries, while the rest of the group was transferred onto another bus and taken to school.

As for what the video footage tells us, well, for starters it confirms that the crossover did indeed run a red light, seen as how cars on both sides of that intersection were stationary. Then there’s the speed of the Escape, which at the moment of impact appears to have greatly decreased compared to how fast it was going when it is first spotted by the dashcam.

Speaking of which, unless that’s Chuck Norris behind the wheel of the dashcam vehicle, we can’t imagine anybody else not being scared to see a large school bus coming at them. Kudos to the bus driver for managing to avoid hitting the cammer.

    quick evasive action by the bus driver.

      well to be honest, the bus driver, he or she will have to go to accident review with the school system and the transportation department will host a accident review with the bus driver, 1 to 3 supervisors, a fellow co worker, driver trainer and maybe a cop, they will ask the bus driver, did he or she look both ways before pulling out into the intersection, I am a school bus driver myself, the bus driver should had look before pulling out into the intersection…
