No injuries reported in minor bus versus pickup crash Friday morning

The front of the International school bus received minor damage – a broken pedestrian guard and cracked front grill – following a Friday morning accident involving a pickup truck at the Grangeville Main Street and U.S. Highway 95 intersection.

The Grangeville Police Department is currently investigating a non-injury two-vehicle accident that occurred this morning, Friday, March 22, at the intersection of Main Street and U.S. Highway 95 involving a fully loaded school bus and pickup truck.

No injuries were reported to the occupants of either vehicle. A citation for failure to yield is pending against the truck driver.

Details on the crash are limited due to the ongoing investigation. The incident was reported around 11:30 a.m. at Grangeville involving an International school bus and a pickup. The bus was northbound, en route to Pomeroy, Wash., with the Grangeville Bulldogs baseball team, when it crashed into the pickup.

The Main Street/U.S. 95 intersection was partially obstructed for less than 10 minutes until both vehicles were moved under their own power to a business parking lot just north of Zip Trip.
