RALEIGH, NC (WNCN) – The driver of a GoRaleigh bus has been cited after being involved in an accident Sunday morning that killed one and seriously injured another, police said.
That Wreckage occurred along Garner Road at Peterson Street, near Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. at 11:15 a.m. on Sunday.
Raleigh Police said a 2005 Acura was traveling north on Garner Road near Peterson Street when it collided with a GoRaleigh bus turning left off Peterson Street onto Garner Road, police said.
The two occupants of the Acura were taken to hospital for treatment of their serious injuries, Raleigh Police said.
The driver of the Acura has since died, but her name has not been released.
A passenger on the bus was not critically injured.
The bus driver was reported for non-evasion with serious bodily injuries.
At the scene, a wrecked car with the roof off had major frontal damage – possibly from rescue workers trying to gain access to the victims inside the car.
According to police, there were five passengers on the bus at the time of the accident.
“It’s very devastating because you don’t know if someone lost their life or not, especially on Palm Sunday before Easter,” said witness Sharlena Baker. “And to see an accident like that – it’s traumatizing. My kids didn’t know what was going on, so I’m praying that whoever it is makes it through.”
Raleigh Police did not release the name of the bus driver.
The police are still investigating the accident.
