School bus driver from Georgina charged after collision

A 54-year-old woman from Georgina has been charged after the school bus she was reportedly driving collided with another vehicle.

Shortly before 4 p.m. Tuesday (Aug. 29), York Regional Police responded to a call about a vehicle being hit by a school bus in Markham. The driver told police the school bus hit her vehicle and then kept bumping into it.

Police say when officers arrived they found the full-size school bus with at least 20 secondary school students on board, had in fact collided with a car. No one was injured.

When officers spoke with the driver of the school bus they reportedly observed signs of impairment by alcohol and she was arrested. She was taken to the police station for a breath test, which she refused.

She has since been charged with refusing to provide a breath sample and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.
