No one injured when Forsyth County school bus hits patrol car

NORTH FORSYTH — A Forsyth County Schools bus driver was found to be at fault Thursday afternoon in an accident between her bus and a Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office patrol vehicle.

Neither the driver nor any of the 25 high school students on board the bus were injured in the collision, according to Robin Stone, a spokeswoman for Georgia State Patrol.

Stone said troopers responded about 4 p.m. to the scene, which was on Hwy. 369 at the corner of North Forsyth High School and the school system’s north transportation shop.

While the sheriff’s deputy was directing school traffic, the bus driver attempted to make a right turn but ran over the front tire and bumper corner of the 2012 Chevrolet Caprice.

“The deputy’s tire was deflated by impact,” Stone said.

All of the students were put onto another bus to be taken home.

The 44-year-old bus driver from Cumming was issued a warning for misjudging the distance.

Stone said she was wearing her seatbelt. The sheriff’s office had the patrol car towed.
