No one injured in Austintown bus crash

AUSTINTOWN — There are no injuries to report from a morning school bus accident in Austintown.

The accident occurred just after 7 a.m. this morning on New Road between Cider Mill Crossing and Herons Boulevard.

The driver said the bus was right on the line at the edge of the road and then the bus just went into the ditch, Colleen Murphy, transportation director for Austintown schools, said.

The road's narrow edge "just sucked him right off of the road," Murphy said.

There were two students on the bus who were both unharmed.

The bus was retrieved from the ditch, but Murphy said she still unsure whether it can be used again.

The Mahoning County engineer's office was at the crash site, Murphy said. The Austintown Fire Department and police responded.

Other buses were able to pick up the remainder of students needing bus transportation.

"The drivers truly work together as a team especially when there is an emergency situation," Murphy said.
