East Patchogue School Bus Crash Injures 5 Teens
Several teenagers were injured Monday when a dump truck driver blew a stop sign and crashed into a school bus in East Patchogue, officials said.
Five teenagers—14-year-old twin boys, a 15-year-old male, a 15-year-old female and a 16 year-old female—were transported by ambulance to Brookhaven Memorial Hospital Medical Center with minor injuries, a Patchogue Fire Department spokesman said.
Authorities said the Holy Angels mini bus was driving east on Carman Street around 3:30 p.m. when an All County Block and Supply dump truck drove past a stop sign and struck the bus. The 36-year-old woman driving the bus wasn’t injured, police said.
The 65-year-old dump truck driver, who didn’t suffer any injuries, was cited for disobeying a stop sign and for an equipment violation, police said.
