At approximately 3:55 pm this afternoon an Arcanum-Butler school bus was involved in a fender/bender accident at the corner of Alternate 49 South and Hollansburg-Sampson Rd. The students and the driver were not injured. Additionally, there were no reported injuries of the driver and passengers of the other vehicle.
A One-Call message was sent to parents with students who ride the bus. Students were transported onto another district bus for transportation to their homes. Parents of the students riding the bus at the time were called by school administration to be notified of the accident. The accident is currently under investigation by the Darke County Sheriff's Office.
We appreciate the actions taken by the bus driver to maintain safety for the riders and the cooperation of our transportation department and additional driver who quickly assisted in transporting the students home.
