Truck Hits School Bus

A 43-year-old Chatham man is facing charges after a truck hit a school bus just outside of Wallaceburg.

Police say a First Student school bus was heading westbound on Kent Line yesterday morning when it was hit by a truck travelling north on Pond Rd. that failed to yield for the bus.

There was only one student on the bus at the time and no injuries were reported after the collision. The damages are pegged at $3,500.

This is the second collision involving a school bus within the municipality, in the same week. The first occurred on Tuesday in Romney Township.
