injured in collision
BRISTOL — An Addison County Transit Resources bus was damaged in a rear-end collision that sent three bus passengers to the hospital Wednesday.
None of the injuries were described as being serious — Vermont State Police said injuries to the passengers and the driver of the 2001 Nissan Maxima that hit the bus were “non-incapacitating.”
But bus passengers Pam Wimett, Judy Schaefer and Douglas Malcomb were taken to Porter Medical Center for treatment.
The crash occurred at about 10:30 a.m. on Route 17 when the Maxima, driven by Gabriel Laberge, 18, of Shoreham, struck the rear of the bus, police said. Laberge was distracted before the crash, police said.
The Maxima was destroyed in the crash while damage to the bus was described as minor.MORE IN This Just In
