Toyota slams into Langley school bus

One person is in hospital after a car crashed into the back of a school bus in South Langley Tuesday just after noon.

The school bus was driving south and slowing for a red light at the corner of 200th Street and 32nd Avenue, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

The bus was empty of children, and the driver was the only person on board at the time.

A Toyota, also heading southbound, slammed into the back of the bus and was pinned under the bus’s rear bumper and undercarriage.

Two of the three people in the car were able to get out, unhurt, but the third was trapped for a short time. She was freed from the vehicle and taken to hospital with what are believed to be minor injuries.

The driver of the school bus was not hurt, but was shaken up by the crash, said Marks.

Anyone who witnessed the crash, but has not yet spoken to the RCMP, can call them at 604-532-3200.
