(North Bay, ON) – Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Regional Traffic Inspector Scott Hlady is reminding everyone to keep an eye out for school buses.
In less than 48 hours we have responded to three collisions involving school buses within the North East Region (NER). One crash resulted in a fatality on Highway 17 and the other two crashes resulted in minor injuries.
The school year continues and winter weather conditions persist to be challenging. It is important that motorists give full attention to driving when behind the wheel of a motor vehicle.
“Buses are not difficult to see on our roadways so please focus on driving when behind the wheel. These are preventable crashes.”
