Four people were injured including two students when two school buses collided after one failed to yield the right of way in the area.

The incident happened around 2:20 p.m. Monday, Nov. 16 in Dutchess County at the intersection of Smith Court and Route 9G in Hyde Park.

The buses were both from the Hyde Park School District.

A Hyde Park officer came upon the crash that occurred when a 20-passenger school bus operated by a 47-year-old woman was exiting Smith Court and failed to yield the right of way of a 27-passenger school bus operated by a 60-year-old man, said Hyde Park Police Chief Robert Benson. 

The impact caused the 27-passenger bus to roll onto its side. The bus that rolled over was occupied by a 74-year-old bus monitor and two students, 11 and 12-years-old, Benson said.

Four occupants were transported to MidHudson Regional Hospital and one was transported to Vassar Brothers Hospital. 

The injuries were non-serious in nature, Benson said.

 Route 9G was closed for more than an hour while Brandl’s Towing removed the buses.

The Hyde Park Police were assisted by:

  • Fairview Fire Department, 
  • Mobil Life Paramedics, 
  • Roosevelt Fire Department, 
  • New York State Park Police, 
  • Dutchess County Sheriffs Office, 
  • New York State Police, 
  • Dutchess County Department of Emergency Response.
