February 12, 2018

[UPDATED 2 p.m.] Two people were injured when a vehicle rear-ended a school bus Monday morning in front of Northview High School.

The school bus with 12 students aboard was stopped to turn from eastbound Highway 4 into the main entrance of Northview High School when it was rear-ended by a 2005 Chevrolet Monte Carlo occupied by three Northview students.

The driver of the Monte Carlo, 18-year old Jakeldria Brown of Atmore, was ticketed for careless driving by the Florida Highway Patrol. The FHP report stated Brown “failed to stop safely behind the school bus striking the rear of the school bus.”

There were no injuries on the bus; Brown and one other occupant from the Monte Carlo were transported by ambulance to Atmore Community Hospital with minor injuries.

The Walnut Hill Station of Escambia Fire Rescue, Escambia County EMS and the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office also responded to the crash.

    Parent. How about instead of worrying about heavier discipline you worry about spelling YOU. And worrying about the students that were harmed.

    What is wrong with people? How do u NOT see a school bus? Especially in a school zone!. There should be more consequences for anybody that rearends a big, yellow school bus… Our babies ride those buses!! If that person will hit a school bus, why u think they will not run over a child getting on or off a stopped bus?!?! There is simply NO REASON OR EXCUSE…
