SUV hits parked school bus in Lloydminster
RCMP in Lloydminster say speed and distracted driving were factors in a crash involving a school bus and SUV.
Police say they were called to a street near an elementary school on Friday morning.
Their investigation determined an SUV travelling north along 47th Avenue rolled over after hitting a parked car, eventually coming to rest against a parked school bus.
Both the parked car and school bus were legally parked and unoccupied at the time of the crash.
The 24-year-old SUV driver, who was alone in the vehicle, was treated by EMS on the scene and released.
He has been charged with driving without due care and attention.
Given the time of day and location of the crash, police say the outcome of the crash could have been much worse.
And the RCMP is reminding drivers to obey the rules of the road, adding that this incident was completely avoidable.
