Five Lakota school buses in accidents

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        WEST CHESTER TWP. — Four Lakota Local Schools buses were involved in separate accidents Thursday morning after a brief snowstorm slickened roadways. An afternoon accident injured a bus driver.

        The morning accidents occurred between 6:40 a.m. and 8:10 a.m., said Jon Weidlich, district spokesman. In each case a driver who could not stop hit an empty bus. No bus drivers were cited by police or injured.

        Thursday afternoon, a fifth accident involving a Lakota bus sent the bus driver, Joann Jeffers, 39, of Hamilton, to the hospital with minor injuries.

        That crash occurred at Smith Road and Ohio 747 when a car driven by a 16-year-old boy struck the empty bus from the rear. The teen was cited for failure to maintain assured clear distance, police said.

        Ms. Jeffers was treated and released at Mercy Hospital Fairfield.
