School bus triggers crash
Driver pushes vehicle into logging truck; woman hurt.

VETERAN -- A Pine City woman was injured Wednesday afternoon in a three-vehicle accident on state Route 13 that included a school bus.

The accident took place at the intersection of state Route 13 and Sullivanville Road in the town of Veteran, just north of Horseheads.

State police said an 18-wheel logging truck driven by Bert VanZile, 72, of Alpine, going south on state Route 13, was waiting to make a left turn onto Sullivanville Road.

A Pontiac Vibe driven by Patricia Peterson, 46, of Pine City, stopped behind the truck.

The school bus, driven by John Rice, 22, of Horseheads, then came up on the Vibe and was unable to stop in time, knocking it into the truck.

The school bus was from Horseheads Central School District, but no children were on the bus at the time, troopers said.

Peterson was transported to Arnot Ogden Medical Center in Elmira for treatment. She was still being evaluated in the hospital Wednesday night, a spokeswoman said. Her Pontiac Vibe was towed from the scene.

VanZile and Rice were not injured.

The school bus and log truck were both driven from the scene. Traffic had to be detoured around the accident site for about an hour until the road was cleared.

The Chemung County Sheriff's Office and the Horseheads Town & Country Fire Department assisted at the scene.

Rice was charged by state police with following too closely.

Gee, wonder if it's totaled?
Hopefully she comes out OK. Honestly from the look of things I'd say she's lucky she was only "injured".

It just needs some rubbing compound and some elbow grease.

But seriously that is a scary site.

I smell that the bus driver will be fired, and the bus company is gonna get a nice lawsuit slapped on them. Time to make some $$$. I'm not one for suing, but for stupidity like that, you have to.

first of all - have you ever studied the tests on vibes??? not good - bad motors and (obviously) unstable bodies/shells. she's lucky it was just that - couldve been worse on any other road with any other vehicle. its called bad timing, people make mistakes. and the driver had no idea she was stopped/slowing because there were never any brake lights to indicate to anyone! and besides - when you're doing the speed limit (which happens to be 55 on route 13 - and the busses by law cant even go 60), its pretty hard to stop on a dime. it's like trying to stop a full semi within 50 feet - NO WAY NO HOW. and the reports that she has serious injuries - ALL B.S. and reports the the driver of the bus was uninjured - also b.s. he's out of work with a hairline fracture on his wrist.

for anyone who knows how i know this - the bus driver was my husband. i saw the whole thing. i saw the tape from the surveilence camera on the bus. he tried like hell to miss her. and we made a visit to her in the hospital. SO...I WOULD SUGGEST NOT MAKING COMMENTS WHEN YOU DONT KNOW THE WHOLE STORY. the medias and news crews just want the money - they dont care about the facts, nor do they report them all. all they see is dollar signs. so you know where you can shove your opinion now...

[IMG]harice4806 you are so full of crap. First off, the Vibe has great crash test ratings (4s and 5s), and there motors a just fine. Not to mention it doesn't take a genius to figure out there a two vehicles in front of you that aren't moving, regardless of break lights.

Oh and if he really ‘tried like hell to miss her’ he wouldn’t have hit her straight on. Further, you can’t see much of anything but seats on the camera of the bus, you can’t even see the driver when he’s sitting.

Your entire post was BS.[/IMG]

Just like in the Vendetta movie, you leave your mark everywhere! LOL

I am constantly amazed at how well occupants of the Vibe fair after such horrific accidents.

I feel that much safer whenever I drive.
