School Bus Carrying Children Crashes Into Car In Hudson Valley
Lifesaving measures were used after a school bus crashed head-on into a car in the Hudson Valley.
On Tuesday around 7:20 a.m., a 2016 school bus was attempting to make a left onto Quaker Road off the Palisades Parkway Exit 13 ramp in the town of Haverstraw.
The school bus failed to notice a 2018 Toyota Prius traveling southwest off the ramp and hit the Toyota, causing heavy front end damage to both vehicles, police say.
The driver of the Toyota, 37-year-old Stephanie Musial of Beacon, sustained a compound fracture to her left arm and a broken left leg. She also complained of chest and neck pain.
According to police, Musial was bleeding heavily from the fracture and a sergeant with the state police applied a tourniquet to stop the bleeding.
The Dutchess County woman was transported to Westchester Medical in serious but stable condition.
The operator of the school bus, Chiacheng Wu, 66, of Bardonia and the aide on the bus, 31-year-old Nedje Pierre-Louis of Spring Valley, had minor injuries and were transported to Nyack Hospital, according to police.
Five children were on the bus at the time of the accident, but none were hurt, police say.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
