Update on Greece school bus crash

GREECE, N.Y. — The two kids and three adults who were on a school bus that crashed on Thursday have been release from the hospital, the Greece Central School District says.

Police say the crash happened around 2:40 p.m. when a driver went through a stop sign on Peck and North Greece roads, hitting a Greece school district bus. The bus rolled on its side and struck two other vehicles.

The district released this statement about the crash:

“We are grateful to the first responders, medical personnel, and district staff who responded swiftly and effectively. Their professionalism and dedication is commendable. We will continue to provide support and assistance to those affected by this incident. 

Six people in total were treated at Strong Hospital. According to police, the driver who hit the bus, age 82, suffered minor injuries. So did the two students on the bus, both 16, and the three adults on the bus, ages, 60, 38, and 21. The district says all five people on the bus have been released from the hospital.

The drivers from the other two vehicles, ages 67 and 19, were not injured. North Greece Road was closed between English Road and Raspberry Patch Drive and has since reopened.

Amber Whitney, who lives nearby, spoke to News10NBC about the crash.

“When I came up, we just saw the bus on its side. There were about two older students that were out. The driver was completely trapped in the bus and also in the blue SUV, and it was wild,” Whitney said.

Greece Police are still investigating the crash.
