Authorities have identified the six victims killed in a horrific
bus accident in Baltimore Tuesday morning. According to Federal and local authorities,
their investigation continues to determine what led a school bus to lose
control and collide with a Maryland Transit Administration bus. The accident
left six people dead. Authorities have identified the six victims as both
bus drivers, a 33-year-old woman and a 67-year-old man, as well as four
MTA passengers – a 51-year-old man, a 46-year-old woman, a 51-year-old
woman, and a 32-year-old man.
Details of the accident have been released. A Baltimore Police spokesperson
said the school bus was eastbound near the 3800 block of Frederick Avenue
when it struck a Ford Mustang. The bus lost control, hit a pillar at Loudon
Park Cemetery, and then over-corrected into oncoming traffic scraping
down the right side of a No. 10 MTA bus.
Officials say there were no children on the bus at the time of the crash.
The 67-year-old bus driver was contracted to Baltimore City Schools through
AA Affordable Transportation. The accident happened just moments before
the bus was to pick up 18 special needs children. The only passenger on
the school bus during the crash was an aide who survived the accident.
According to officials, the driver of the Ford Mustang that was struck
by the school bus was injured in the accident and was among the ten that
were sent to the hospital. The collision totaled the vehicle.
