Lake County School Bus Accident On Route 173

There was a collision between two school buses on Tuesday (September 10, 2013.)  This Lake County bus accident happened on Route 173 at approximately 3:00 p.m., and involved buses transporting Antioch schoolchildren from Antioch School District 34.

An excerpt from the Lake County News-Sun article of September 11, 2013, titled “Students on board in accident involving 2 buses” :

Both buses were eastbound on Route 173 around 3 p.m. and both were turning right to go southbound on Route 83. The first bus driver started to make the turn and then stopped abruptly. The second bus driver had begun turning as well and was looking in the direction of oncoming traffic, “but didn’t notice soon enough the other bus had stopped,” he said.

The article discusses that despite the nature of the accident, proper procedures were not followed by the school district as emergency personnel were not called to respond to the accident.

Additional details and possible updates can be seen in a variety of media sources, including the Lake County News-Sun article mentioned above.
