A Sag Harbor School District bus was involved in an accident on November 20 that injured all three people onboard.
“Unfortunately, this afternoon, a Sag Harbor school bus was involved in an accident on Scuttlehole Road,” said District Supervisor Katy Graves. At the time, one elementary student, a bus matron, and the bus driver were the only occupants of the bus. The Southampton Police Department responded to the scene, and “all three were taken to the hospital for observation and treatment of any injuries,” according to the police report. The bus driver was airlifted to the hospital.
The accident, which appeared to involve several vehicles, occurred around mid-afternoon. “As always, the safety of our students and staff is our highest priority. The police are conducting their investigation and the district will fully cooperate. We will also continue to stay in contact with those involved in the accident,” Graves said.
Police did not release the names of anyone involved.
