PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — An early morning school bus crash left one teen seriously injured after he slammed into a school bus stopped at a railroad crossing.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office says a full-sized school bus was stopped at the train tracks in the area of 6th Avenue South and I-95 in Lake Worth around 6:10 Wednesday morning. While the bus driver — on the first day of school — performed a mandatory safety check at the railroad crossing, a teen driving a 2021 Chevrolet Malibu slammed into the rear of the bus.

The bus driver had no idea there had been a collision, so started to pull forward — actually dragging the Malibu over the train tracks. After crossing the tracks, the bus driver realized there had been a crash and called for help.

The driver of the Chevy Malibu and a female passenger were both hospitalized with serious but non-life threatening injuries. The school bus driver, and a 13-year-old girl from Boynton Beach, were not injured. The investigation continues.
