Witnesses Sought in School Bus Crash Investigation

A 62-year-old Waterford man was seriously injured after he was involved in a crash with a Loudoun County Public School bus west of Round Hill on Friday afternoon. 

According to the Sheriff’s Office, the crash occurred shortly before 5 p.m. Sept. 20, when the school bus was stopped at its regular stop in the right-hand lane of eastbound Rt. 7 at Calumet Lane near Bluemont. The student, the only passenger on the bus, was walking to the front of the bus at the time of the crash. The student and bus driver were not injured.

Investigators confirmed the bus’ stop sign and lights were activated when the driver of the eastbound 2007 Subaru Forrester rear-ended the bus. The driver was extricated from his vehicle and was airlifted from the scene to Inova Fairfax Hospital for treatment of injuries described as serious but non-life-threatening. 

The crash remains under investigation by the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office.

Any witnesses who have not already talked with law enforcement are asked to contact Investigator D. Lake at 703-737-8307.
