Veteran School Bus Driver Killed in 3-Vehicle Collision
A 49-year-old veteran Chester County school bus driver was killed in a three-vehicle collision on Route 322.
According to an article in the Philadelphia Inquirer, the bus driver was traveling east on Route 322 to her job at the Krapf’s bus companies. She had stopped her Dodge Caravan to make a left turn onto Highspire Road when she was struck from behind by a pickup truck.
The impact of the crash propelled the woman’s vehicle into the westbound lane, where it was hit from the side by a Cadillac. The driver was wearing a seat belt. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
The passenger and driver of the Cadillac and the pickup driver were taken to local hospitals for what appeared to be nonlife-threatening injuries.
The woman was an 11-year employee of Krapf’s. She drove Downingtown Bus 79, which served the Villa Maria Lower School in Malvern and SS. Peter and Paul elementary school in Exton. She drove school children of all ages.
