School Bus vs. Car Involved in Crash on Pendergrass Road

01/29/2013

This afternoon at approximately 3:15 p.m. a traffic crash occurred in the 12800 block of Pendergrass Road involving a school bus and another vehicle.

The school bus was traveling northbound on Pendergrass carrying twenty-one students from both Soddy Daisy High and Soddy Daisy Middle Schools. The Ford Focus was traveling southbound on Pendergrass Road. As both vehicles approached a curve in the road the Ford Focus crossed the yellow center line striking the school bus. The driver of the Ford Focus sustained minor injuries as did two of the students traveling on the bus.

The school system sent another bus to complete the bus route with the remaining students, while the injured were transported to receive medical attention.

The investigation into this crash is on-going and being investigated by the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Division.
