A car collided Monday morning with a school bus carrying 20 students to Osborne Elementary School, according to
The bus driver, John Dobrzanski, told police he was traveling south at 7:50 a.m. on Beaver Street and had the green light when a Chevy Cobalt that Kyleigh Abraham, 24, of Baden, was driving went through the intersection at Broad Street and in front of the bus.
Police said the mechanical arm deflector on the front of the bus struck the bumper on Abraham’s car, causing her vehicle to spin. Police said the car came to a stop in the opposite lane, facing the wrong direction.
Abraham told officers she couldn’t remember what color the traffic light was, police said.
None of the students riding the bus were injured, and the bus was not damaged, police said. Abraham’s car had moderate damage to the rear bumper area, police said.
Martha Smith, district spokeswoman, said after the bus driver and police assessed that no child required medical attention, the bus proceeded to Osborne School where the school nurse followed standard protocol and attended to any student who reported some discomfort.
Police said the bus driver returned to the accident site to follow up with officers making a report.
Osborne Principal Barb Mellett sent home a brief note to all parents whose children were on the bus. Information about the accident was also sent via e-link to district parents, Smith said.
Police cited Abraham with failing to obey traffic signals.
