A multiple-vehicle accident resulted in multiple deaths and injuries in Southern Baltimore on Tuesday when a school bus went out of control.
According to police, the school bus first hit the back of a Mustang, then headed uncontrollably into a pillar before finally crashing into a commuter bus. According to a police report, there was a driver and one aide on board and no children were on the bus at the time of the accident. The driver of the Mustang sustained injuries.
After striking the Mustang, the school bus then hit a pillar at a cemetery, moved into oncoming traffic and smashed almost head-on into a Maryland Transit Administration bus. The crash was on the driver’s side and ripped open the side of the MTA bus, where more than a dozen people were seated.
Speaking about the accident, Baltimore police spokesman T.J. Smith stated that the commuter bus looked like a bomb had gone off inside. The driver of the school bus and five passengers on the MTA bus were killed in the accident, and Smith stated that it appeared that the school bus had not attempted to brake, as there were no skid marks.
The aide on the school bus and at least 9 other people on the commuter bus sustained minor to critical injuries.. The accident is currently under investigation and the Baltimore Sun has not verified which school in the city school system the bus was associated with.
