No one hurt in Bristol school bus accident
BRISTOL — Vermont State Police responded to an accident involving a school bus Wednesday afternoon in Bristol.
Police said around 3:20 p.m., a school bus driven by town resident Rachel Ashline attempted to back into a driveway along Burpee Road to turn around. The bus hit a pickup truck driven by Julianna Doherty of Monkton, who was driving north on the road, causing “severe contact damage” to that vehicle. The bus sustained minor damage.
Neither driver nor the 15 Bristol Elementary School students onboard sustained any injuries. Addison Northeast Supervisory Union Superintendent David Adams was not available for comment on Thursday.
This is the second accident to befall an ANeSU bus this year. In May, a school bus carrying the varsity track and field team to a meet in Winooski caught fire in Hinesburg. No one was injured in that incident, either.
