On Tuesday, October 27, 2009 at approximately 0716 hours, South Hilo Patrol Officers responded to a report of a traffic accident at the intersection of Kilauea Avenue and Palai Street.
Upon officers’ arrival at the scene it was determined that a green 1996 Ford 4dsd, operated by a 57-year-old Hilo woman was traveling east on Palai Street and collided with a small school bus traveling north on Kilauea Avenue being operated by a 58-year-old Hilo man. After the collision the school bus ran off the roadway and overturned, coming to rest within the yard of a residence at the intersection of Kilauea Avenue and Palai Street.
The bus contained the driver, 9 students, ranging from 3 to 8 years of age, and a female aide. There were no reported injuries resulting from the accident, but the children were taken to the Hilo Medical Center to be examined as a precaution.
Police ask that any witnesses to the accident contact Officer Nicole Leyson of the South Hilo Patrol Division at the Police Department’s non-emergency line at 935-3311.
