School Bus Strikes Girl In Milpitas Crosswalk

MILPITAS (BCN) — A school bus struck a 10-year-old girl in a crosswalk in Milpitas Wednesday afternoon, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The girl was making her way across the street with a friend near Edsel and Roswell drives at 2:08 p.m. when a school bus that was turning left struck her, and she fell down, CHP Officer Steve Griefer said.

She wasn’t seriously hurt and her friend wasn’t injured, but the girl was taken to a hospital as a precaution. Her parents weren’t at the scene and she had complained of pain to her side, Griefer said.

Parents and guardians picked up passengers on the bus, Griefer said.

No arrests were made and no other injuries were reported.

The CHP is investigating the accident, Griefer said.

    I question the bus company allowing the driver to drive back to the bus yard. I work with ground transportation, and it is manatory that any commercial driver that strikes a pedestrian be drug and alcohol tested. How many more individuals on foot took a risk while this person drove?

      Just because the article didn’t mention any drug/alcohol tests, does not mean the driver is not getting tested. The article also does not state that the driver proceeded to drive the bus back to the yard. Those are some bold assumptions you make.
