School Bus Crash Near Hanover Injures 11

Posted on Jan 14, 2013

Eleven people were injured in a crash Friday afternoon involving a Bermudian Springs High School bus and a pickup truck near East Berlin, Adams County. Officials said 33 students were on the bus. Ten were taken to hospitals for treatment of minor injuries such as cuts and bruises, but none was seriously hurt.

The driver of the pickup truck appeared to have the most serious injuries, but none were believed to be life threatening, according to an official on the scene, who added that the worst injury to a student was a cut on the head.

The crash occurred on Route 94, known locally as Carlisle Pike, at the intersection of Round Hill Road in Reading Township.  Police said charges are pending against the driver of the pickup because the truck tires were bald and he failed to operate the vehicle at a safe speed.
