Delaware State Police have charged the driver of this DART bus after an accident this past Friday.
MCpl. Jeffrey Hale, state police spokesman, says this 2009 Gillig Bus, driven by a 49-year-old woman, collided with a 2000 Dodge Ram pickup truck driven by a 46-year-old man around 8:50 a.m.
The bus was headed north preparing to make a left turn onto U.S. Route 9 from Belltown Road, MCpl. Hale stated. The bus driver failed to yield the right of way to the pickup which was traveling south across U.S. Route 9 onto Belltown Road from the Ace Hardware access road causing the collision, he added.
The driver of the pickup truck was taken to Beebe Hospital with minor non-life-threatening injuries, he said. Three passengers on the bus were uninjured.
The bus driver was cited for failure to yield the right of way on a left turn.
