A vehicle hit a school bus Aug. 9 resulting in unknown injuries for the driver of the car but no injuries to the children.
Erik Pace was driving his white Pontiac sedan southbound on Latrobe Road south of Cothrin Ranch Road at around 8 a.m. at an “unsafe speed” when he tried to pass a car by going over double yellow lines, CHP Officer Quinn Cuthbertson said.
Pace lost control of his sedan, spinning 180 degrees. The rear end of the car struck the front of an Amador County Type A mini school bus that was traveling southbound on Latrobe.
The three special needs children and driver of the bus were uninjured, though the children were transported to the hospital as a precaution, Cuthbertson said. Pace was taken by Life Flight to a medical center “with unknown injuries.”
