Wake Forest, NC (November 7, 2018) – This morning, November 7, a serious accident took place involving a Wake County School Bus and a pickup truck. The rear-end accident between the two vehicles took place on Jones Dairy Road.
The police were called to the scene of the accident near Willowlawn Drive around 7:30 a.m. Thankfully, no children were on the bus at the time of the accident.
The bus was on its way to the first stop to pick up a child and was being serviced by the Heritage Middle School. Kids were on the street and witnessed the accident take place.
An 11-year-old spoke with police and said that she witnessed the truck driver’s head strike the steering wheel. Injuries were reported, but we do not know the conditions of those involved at this time.
Police continue to investigate the accident.
We were saddened to hear about this accident and hope that the bus driver and any other injured parties will be able to recover from this serious accident after the reckless actions of a party who was unable to stop in time because they were speeding or following too closely. We understand that you are dealing with the physical, emotional, and financial trauma that follows one of these accidents, and we want you to know that you are not alone.
