REDMOND, OR -- A motor vehicle accident involving a school bus occurred yesterday, sending one child to the hospital for minor injuries.
63-year-old Clarence Rosebrook of Bend struck the right rear corner of the bus at the intersection of SW Canal Blvd. and NW McVey Ave. in Redmond.
Evidence at the scene indicated Rosebrook attempted to avoid a collision with the bus, but his vehicle sustained heavy front end damage, leaving him pinned inside for 15 minutes.
There were two adults and three students on the bus at the time of the collision, and one of the students was transported by ground ambulance to St. Charles Medical Center.
Neither intoxication nor distracted driving is believed to have contributed to the accident.
Rosebrook was cited for following too closely.
