[ARCHIVED] Vehicle - Bus Collision Resulting in One Injury

Flagstaff, AZ; On Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at about 4:12 pm Coconino County Sheriff’s Emergency Dispatchers received multiple cell phone calls from individuals reporting a collision between a SUV and a school bus on Townsend Winona Road in the area of Lindsey Road. Several of the callers reported that the adult female driver of the SUV was trapped inside her vehicle.

Deputies assisted firefighters of the Summit Fire District in extricating the 66 year old female driver of the S.U.V. from her vehicle where she was trapped. Once emergency first responders were able to remove the driver, she received on-scene emergency medical care. The victim was then transported to the Flagstaff Medical Center Emergency Room by Guardian Medical Transport where she was treated for non-life threating injuries. The bus driver who was uninjured was the only occupant of the school bus as there were no student passengers.

Judging from information received during interviews with witnesses and physical evidence found on the roadway, investigators believe that just prior to the collision the S.U.V. was headed eastbound and the school bus was traveling in the west bound lane of Townsend Winona Road. For an unknown reason the S.U.V. partially left the west bound lane and crossed over into the east bound lane resulting in the driver’s side of the S.U.V. impacting the driver’s side front corner of the school bus. This collision remains under investigation.
