Students Injured When School Bus Overturns in Crash
None of the students was seriously injured, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
HERNANDO COUNTY – Six high school students suffered minor injuries this morning (April 18) when their school bus overturned after being hit by a tractor-trailer, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
Alexander J. Segovia, 33, of Ocala, was cited for violation of a traffic signal, troopers said.
The crash happened about 6:19 a.m. at the intersection of State Road 50 and the exit ramp at I-75 in Hernando County. Troopers said Segovia was driving a tractor-trailer hauling toilet paper south on I-75 and exited at SR 50. When he got to the end of the exit ramp, Segovia failed to fully stop for a red traffic light and partially entered the intersection.
The tractor-trailer collided with a 2009 school bus being driven west on SR 50 by Carmen J. Frongillo, 62, of Brooksville, which was carrying 18 students to Hernando High School.
The collision caused the bus to overturn. Six of the 18 students received minor injuries, but none were taken to the hospital by paramedics.
