An Osceola County school bus pinned a women against her car in an accident on Thursday, says the Florida Highway Patrol. The school bus was apparently traveling westbound on Boggy Creek Road with two other cars when the 30 year old bus driver, Yanaria Pagan, slammed against an Acura and pinned 52 year old Sandra Beatty against her windshield and car seat.
Before the accident, she stopped behind a van driven by 40 year old Iris Mercedes and that’s when the bus was unable to stop accelerating and hit the Acura, pushing it farther into the back of the van.
Beatty was pinned so hard between the seat and windshield that she had to be cut out of the car. She was quickly transported to Osceola Regional Medical Center for minor injuries. Troopers say only two females were aboard the bus, but luckily did not get injured. The van driver and bus driver are both fine.
The bus was cited for careless driving, say troopers.
