Clarksville, Tennessee Bus Crash

A school bus crash in Clarksville injured 15 students and the bus driver Friday morning. There were 57 students of Rossview Middle and Rossview High School on board when the bus was rear-ended by a 16-year-old girl who said she could not stop in time. She was cited for following too closely. Ten students and the bus driver were transported to Gateway Medical Center with complaints of neck and/or head pain. Another five students were picked up at the scene and taken by their parents to the hospital. The students who were not taken to the hospital were picked up by a second school bus and taken to Rossview Middle School and Rossview High School.

Second bus crash

When the second bus arrived to transport the remaining students to school, a second crash occurred. The students were transferring from one bus to the other when a 2009 Dodge Caravan being driving by Alec Bachard, 21, went around traffic cones unaware of the existing school bus crash. Mr. Bachard could not stop his vehicle due to faulty brakes and sideswiped the second bus. Bachard told police he was aware the brakes were faulty, was taking the vehicle to be repaired, and was using the emergency brake to stop the vehicle. Bachard was cited for reckless driving, operating an unsafe vehicle and no insurance. See the full story here: www.wsmv.com/story/20346640/clarksville-bus-crash-injures-15-students-driver .
