Bus driver praised for actions after collision on 40

For 13 Kenston Forest students, their families, and the entire Kavalier community, Thanksgiving 2018 began last week and will extend well past the carving of turkey tomorrow.

All but one of those students aboard a bus, which overturned after being struck from behind by a Mack truck, had returned to school as of Monday this week.

Last Tuesday’s accident occurred at 3:25 p.m. at the intersection of Rt. 40 (Blackstone Road) and Fletcher Chapel Road in Lunenburg County.
