There’s an old saying that things come in threes. In the second of such similar accidents in a week, another Emory bus was involved in a crash. Again, the bus driver was not at fault in this particular accident. Let’s hope the old saying does not prove true.
Last week, an Emory University shuttle bus was involved in an accident with an ambulance. In that instance, the ambulance driver was found to be at fault. The bus crashed into a closed business after being struck by the ambulance.
On Wednesday, December 16th, another Emory University shuttle bus was involved in an accident. This time, the accident occurred on Interstate 20 Westbound.
Authorities report that the bus was stopped for unknown reasons. The accident took place in the center lane of the interstate around 8:30 am. Sometime after the bus stopped, 48-year-old Misty McDonald crashed her car into the rear of the bus. McDonald, who is from Social Circle, was fatally injured.
Thankfully, no one on the bus was injured. Dennis Richards, age 64, of Atlanta, was driving the bus at the time of the accident.
Emory University released a statement regarding the accident stating that seven students had boarded the bus at the Oxford College campus. None of the students were injured. The university specified that the accident took place in Newton County near Almon Road.
