School Bus Crashes Into Fort Pierce House
A vehicle crash sent a school bus crashing into a house in Fort Pierce in St. Lucie County.
“The whole bus was in my driveway, I was like oh wow,” said a 34-year old, who was inside the house at the time, but wasn’t hurt. “I started shaking. It’s just horrific.”
Firefighters with the St. Lucie Fire District responded to a home in the 2200 block of Delaware Avenue near the intersection of S. 22nd Street when a 2-vehicle accident caused the bus to crash into the side of the home.
The 34-year old was a room over from where the bus crashed.
“Just a little bit more and that was my ticket,” he said.
Two children were on board the bus at the time of the crash, according to St. Lucie Fire District. Both of the children were not seriously injured and have been taken to a nearby hospital. The bus was coming from Fairlawn Elementary, according to Fort Pierce Police and the FHP.
The bus driver and two people in the other vehicle were transported to a local hospital for treatment. They are all in stable condition.
The house is condemned and deemed uninhabitable by officials. Four people, two adults and two children, have been displaced from the home due to the crash. The American Red Cross is assisting them.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in several serious injuries.
