HAMILTON >> A medical transport van collided with a school bus Wednesday afternoon, creating a chain-reaction that ended with the bus hitting a man who was waiting for public transportation.
According to police, around 3:40 p.m. Wednesday, township resident Charles Jackson, 36, was driving a medical transport van northbound on Klockner Road when he collided with a Delaware Valley School bus being driven by 74-year-old John Terrell eastbound on Hamilton Avenue.
The collision forced the school bus into the oncoming westbound lanes of Hamilton Avenue where it hit a 2010 Honda Accord being driven by a 51-year-old man. The school bus continued onto the sidewalk, crashed into a NJ Transit bus stop canopy and struck a 32-year-old Trenton man in the leg while he was waiting for the bus.
At the time of the crash, police say, two women were in the van: a 41-year-old Trenton woman suffered injuries to her face, head and legs; and a 63-year-old woman from Hamilton suffered a broken leg and injuries to her back.
Police say three PACE Charter school students were on the school bus but suffered no injuries.
All injuries are considered non-life-threatening, and the crash is still under investigation. Witnesses are asked to call police at 609-581-4024. Information may also be left anonymously on the Hamilton Police Crime Tip Hotline at 609-581-4008.
