Third Howard bus crash since June 6 sends 1 to Shock Trauma

The driver of a Honda Civic struck by a bus Wednesday afternoon has been taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center with non-life-threatening injuries, according to Howard County Police.

It is the third accident involving a bus in Howard County since June 6.

Police are investigating the two-vehicle collision, which occurred on Route 40 near the intersection of Marriottsville Road in Ellicott City. 

According to police, the driver of a bus from the Woodstock Jobs Corps Center was traveling eastbound when she made a left turn onto Marriottsville Road, driving into the path of the Honda Civic heading westbound.

Police said none of the 8-to-10 passengers on the bus, all teenagers, was injured. The driver of the bus, who has not been identified, also was not injured, according to police.

Marriottsville Road is currently closed at Route 40, but is expected to be reopened by 5:30 p.m. No charges have been filed as the investigation continues.

On June 11, two 12-year-old Wilde Lake Middle School students sustained minor injuries after their school bus collided with a van, according to police. 

On June 6, four adults and five elementary school students were taken to Howard County General Hospital after a three-car accident on Centennial Lane in Ellicott City. All nine were released from the hospital, and the bus driver was cited for failing to control his speed, according to police.
