A truck driver hit a school bus carrying 22 middle school students, sending it over the guardrail. The bus driver, bus monitor and students were treated for minor injuries, but the accident was preventable. The pick-up truck driver had crossed several lanes of the highway without checking for other vehicles. State Police cited the truck driver with negligent operation of a motor vehicle, making an unsafe lane change and failure to use care when passing, according to a Boston Herald report.
Another car accident was fatal in May 2017. One person died in a three-car crash on Route 20 near the Wayland town line. The Middlesex District Attorney’s office investigated and had to close down both lanes of traffic in the busy area for several hours.
