Kids Hurt When Bus Crashes After Leaving Dorney Park
A bus with about 30 students on board crashed following a trip to Dorney Park
A bus carrying about 30 students crashed around 6 p.m. Friday after leaving Dorney Park. The bus is from the Pennridge Regional School District in Perkasie, Bucks County.
There were no serious injuries, according to Trooper Jeremy Temple of the Fogeslville state police barracks. About 15 people were taken to local hospitals - seven to St Luke's Hospital and eight to Lehigh Valley Hospital's Cedar Crest campus.
The bus hit a light pole on the ramp from Hamilton Boulevard to Interstate 78 in Lower Macungie Township.
Police say three buses were on Hamilton Boulevard/Route 222 waiting at a traffic light. The first bus made it through the light as the green arrow changed to solid green. The second bus crashed when making a hard left to avoid an oncoming red sedan driving northbound.
The bus driver will be cited for failing to yield to oncoming traffic, police said. The bus has major front-end damage.
No students were seriously hurt when a Parkland school bus flipped on its side in March. A beloved Parkland bus driver was killed wher her bus crashed into the Upper Macungie Township building last year.
