Head Start bus collides with coal truck
BOOMER, W.Va. -- A Head Start bus and a coal truck were in a minor collision Thursday morning near the Montgomery Bridge exit ramp on W.Va. 61.
None of the 22 pre-school children on the bus was injured, officials said.
The coal truck's mirror broke a window of the school bus, but no other damage was reported, according to Keith Young, director of Fayette County Head Start programs.
"The accident was relatively minor, but our driver is at fault. He did not see the coal truck in his mirror when he went to merge into traffic headed toward Boomer," Young said.Head Start officials are awaiting drug and alcohol test results of the driver. The drug test is part of company policy no matter the severity of an accident and was not done out of suspicion, Young said.
