It was just after 3PM when emergency services were called to CR-45 north of Staples Rd for an MVC. A southbound pickup truck had crossed the centre line and struck a northbound school bus with five student on it.
Thankfully none of the five students on board were injured in the collision. A witness told us that the bus driver did everything she could to avoid the pickup truck.
CR-45 was closed for some time while crews worked to determine the cause of the crash which has not yet been determined. No injuries were reported from this accident.
The driver of the southbound pickup truck had two previous driving complaints before this MVC took place. The driver was subsequently charged with careless driving as a result of the investigation.
CR-45 is still closed, but we can expect it to reopen within the next 15 minutes.
