Woman dies after crash with school bus
Wheatland, N.Y. A Churchville woman was killed after a school bus broadsided her car at the intersection of Wheatland Center Road and Scottsville Mumford Road Wednesday afternoon.
88-year-old Glenna Osborne was driving south on Wheatland Center Road when investigators said she ran a stop sign and cut out in front of the bus.
It braked really hard like we all flew forward and then we heard like a really loud crash and then glass breaking, 12-year-old Carlize Rivera said glass from the car flew in through the open windows of the bus.
13-year-old Rebekah Rivera was in the back of the bus; the crash tossed her into the seat in front of her and bruised her cheek. A couple of the kids also hit their face and I think one of them was actually bleeding that's how hard the force was.
As young at 7-years-old there were 35 kids, plus the driver on board the bus, headed home from a day of camp at the Genesee Country Museum.
An hour before she was supposed to pick up her kids, the mother of the two girls, Jezie Rivera rushed to the scene after she got a frantic phone call. It was my oldest daughter telling me they had been in a really bad accident and that she was really, really scared.
Rivera said she didnt know what happened but her kids were panicked and in pain. It's just your heart drops and you just have to take deep breaths. It took her 25-minutes to get to Wheatland but the Rivera said it felt like an eternity. When she finally got out there, Rivera said all the kids were off the bus lined up on the grass, getting checked out by emergency responders.
She ran to her girls, To be able to see them and hug them and have them hug me back they just kind of breathed and so did I.
A two-way intersection, emergency responders said they are often called out to that area because of these kinds of crashes.
