Rush, NY (March 19, 2019) – A car was reported to have passed a stopped school bus, subsequently hitting a 10-year-old girl who was crossing the street on Tuesday morning, March 19th. According to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, the accident took place at or near the intersection of East River Road and Telephone Road.
The school bus was reported to have made a left turn off Telephone Road onto East River Road, where it stopped in front of a home with its flashing lights activated. A vehicle that may have had trouble stopping due to slippery roads then passed the stopped bus and struck the fourth-grade girl attempting to board it.
The victim was able to stand up after the accident but was rushed to Strong Memorial Hospital to be treated for any injuries. At this time, the specific condition of the girl has not been stated. The driver of the car was issued tickets for passing a stopped school bus and driving too fast for the road conditions.
