4 taken to hospital after car, school bus crash in Hamden

New Haven

HAMDEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Four people were injured after a car struck a school bus in Hamden on Wednesday morning.

Police say that at around 7:15 a.m., first responders were dispatched to the corner of Lakeview and Benham Street for a school bus, car motor vehicle accident.

A preliminary investigation revealed that the driver of the school bus was stopped and waiting to turn left onto Lakeview Avenue, when a second vehicle, driven by a 30 year-old Hamden resident, was traveling eastbound on Benham Street.

The driver of the second vehicle then “lost control of his vehicle on the wet road” and struck the front of the school bus.

The Hamden man sustained serious injuries to his leg and hip and was taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital for treatment.

There were four teen-aged passengers that attend New Haven Academy on the school bus. Two of the teens were also taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital for head and neck injuries, while the bus driver was transported there with “aches and pains.”

Officials says schools were notified and the rest of the kids were picked up by their parents.

Investigation is ongoing.
