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.
