An accident involving a school bus and LYNX commuter bus on Thursday, October 27 sent four children and three adults to area hospitals with undisclosed injuries. The accident investigation is still underway, but Orlando Police say that the LYNX bus rear-ended the school bus on Orange Blossom Trail near Plymouth Sorrento Road shortly after 8 a.m. The school bus had stopped to pick up children with its lights flashing and stop sign extended when the crash occurred, and police are still trying to determine how the driver of the LYNX bus failed to stop in time to avoid the accident.
Florida Highway Patrol officers investigating a rear-end crash involving a Lynx bus say that the driver of the car that struck the bus may have been drinking before the crash. Troopers are still waiting for toxicology test results in connection with the accident that occurred on August 25 around 9 p.m. Accident investigators say the suspect was driving a 2004 GMC Envoy that rear-ended the Lynx bus that had stopped on Semoran Boulevard near the intersection with Banchory Road to release passengers. Troopers also acknowledged that they had received earlier reports about the suspect diving in an erratic and unsafe manner before the crash.
