School Bus Driver Cited In Rollover Crash That Sent 41 Students To Hospital
The school bus driver who was driving an Indian Lake School bus that overturned on Monday is facing a citation.
According to the Marysville Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Terrassa J. Cline, 35, of Jackson Center, was driving southbound on Township Road 88 when she failed to maintain control of the vehicle and traveled off the right side of the roadway. The bus then overturned at about 4 p.m.
Cline was cited for failure to maintain reasonable control, OSHP officials said.
The 41 students who were aboard the bus at the time of the crash were all transported to Mary Rutan Hospital in Bellefontaine as a precaution. None of the injuries sustained in the crash was life threatening.
According to the Logan County Sheriff’s Office, on Jan. 25, Cline drove off the side of the road and struck a fence. She had 26 students on board the bus, but no one was injured. No citations were issued for that incident.
The crash remained under investigation, and OSHP officials said they did not believe alcohol was a factor.
Cline is on paid administrative leave with the Indian Lake School District.
The district superintendent told 10TV News that Cline has never had any complains against her.
The superintendent said that an internal investigation into the crash has been launched, and the district will make a decision about Cline’s employment when the investigation is completed.
