Head-On Collision Injures Seneca Valley Bus Driver
Neither of the two teen boys on board the bus Tuesday are hurt. Jackson Township police continue to investigate the incident.
Jackson Township Police Chief Terry Seilhamer said Connor Mincer, 20, of Evans City, was driving on Textor School Road at about 3:15 p.m. when he collided with a bus coming the opposite way from the Seneca Valley secondary campus in Jackson.
Neither of the two high school students on board the bus at the time were hurt, Seilhamer said.
The bus driver, 60-year-old Christine Albert of Evans City, sustained an arm injury, Seilhamer said. Mincer had facial injuries and also complained of back pain, the chief said.
Both were taken by ambulance to Butler Memorial Hospital in Butler.
Seilhamer said no charges would be filed until police finish their investigation. Officers are working to determine if speed was a factor in the incident, he said.
“It appears the pickup truck was at fault,” he said.
Textor School Road was closed for about an hour Tuesday. Seilhamer said both the car and the bus required towing from the scene.
Albert is an employee of AJ Meyers and Sons, Inc, the company Seneca Valley contracts its bus service with.
