On Tuesday evening at approximately 10:30 pm, an old school bus hit a car after sliding on the interstate highway. The crash occurred just north the Cygnet exit and resulted in the injury of 28 people.
A Toyota Camry carrying seven people was involved in the accident, three of those people being young children, one of which was sitting on her father’s lap unrestrained. The bus that rear-ended the Camry was transporting 30 workers from Hearthside Food Solutions in Macomb to Toledo.
It has been reported that a white van had been driving erratically on the highway and allegedly cut off the Toyota Camry which caused it to drive into the front of the bus. The driver of the white van was questioned by officers and claimed to be from out of state and was lost.
One of the passengers on the bus, Marquan Williams, was life-flighted to Mercy St.
Vincent Medical Center. Williams reportedly has serious injuries, but thankfully they are not life-threatening. Twenty-four other people were taken to Wood County Hospital, and others were taken to Blanchard Valley Hospital in Findlay, Ohio.
Cause of the Accident
There have been no citations reported, but the woman driving the white van will most likely be cited. Her reported “erratic” driving will most likely be deemed the cause of the accident that resulted in multiple injuries.
Our thoughts and prayers are with those recovering from the crash, both emotionally and physically.
