CORNER BROOK There was nobody hurt, and no charges are expected, after a car collided with a bus in Corner Brook today.
The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary (RNC) is investigating the two-vehicle collision that occurred in the east end of the city at about 12:30 p.m. The bus, travelling in the eastbound lane, was transporting two students to school when it collided with a car travelling in the opposite direction. The car sustained moderate damage and had to be towed from the scene.
Road conditions at the time were snow and ice covered, and speed was not deemed to be a factor. Charges under the Highway Traffic Act are not anticipated.
The Newfoundland and Labrador English School District is also looking into the situation. The students were taken to school on another bus, the parents/guardians were notified, and the bus will be removed from services and inspected before being used again.
The RNC would like to remind motorists that weather and road conditions can change quickly at this time of year and caution should be used at all times. Winter driving conditions require drivers to reduce speeds and increase distance between the vehicle in front of them.
