Sedan collides with school bus

From page A4 | August 16, 2013 | 5 Comments

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.”

    Good job CHP! Now let's get busy and start writing tickets for tailgaters, and speedsters!

    Are you serious? Why are you telling the CHP "good job?" What do they do? They're mandated to write tickets-that is about it.

    @Bob A Are you for real? They only write tickets? Take a look: Please refrain from posting ignorant statements in the future.
