Elementary School Bus Collides with Nissan on Old Kings Rd

PALM COAST – A school bus with students from Old Kings Elementary School was in a collision with a Nissan Sentra Monday afternoon. The incident is reported to have happened shortly after 4:00 pm. It resulted in no injuries to any of the 23 kids on board or the bus driver. The Nissan took on considerably more damage than the school bus, but its driver was also not seriously hurt.

The Nissan, which had its front end smashed up in the collision, deployed its airbags upon impact. The driver was tended to by the Palm Coast Fire Department and Flagler Fire Rescue, but chose not to receive further treatment at the hospital. The incident did not result in lasting closures of Old Kings Rd. The bus was known as the ‘Giraffe Bus’, as buses in Flagler County are often designated by animal mascots to make them easily identifiable for their student passengers.

More information will be added to this story if it becomes available.

    First I’m glad that no one was seriously hurt.
    second, these school bus drivers must think they get a bonus if they finish their routes the fastest. Two of the school buses that come past my house in the r section do at least 45 mph down the road. One happens to be a special needs bus. The next time I remember that the bus is coming, I’m going out there and find out the bus number and report it to the bus garage before someone gets hit or the driver collides with some other vehicle and someone really gets hurt or killed. Keep in mind these kids are suppose to be or future and the driver is responsible for transporting them to school and back home again.
