On Tuesday (2/28) at 7:45 a.m. a van operated by Alicia Cadwell, age 43, of Sodus was westbound on Marion-East Williamson Road in the hamlet of Marion. The vehicle stopped for a stop sign, then proceeded into the path of a Marion school bus, operated by Shirley Murphy, age 70, of Marion. The Marion school bus had no students onboard at the time of the crash.
The impact sent the van off the road onto the west side of North Main Street into the yard of Pete Revard. The school bus travelled about 200 feet off the roadway and hit a tree in the backyard of the Revard home. Revard said both he and his wife were fast asleep at the time and only became aware of the incident after his wife saw someone pass a window and looked out and saw the school bus.
Murphy was transported by Marion Ambulance to Newark Wayne Hospital where she was treated for her injuries and released.
Cadwell was taken by Mercy Flight to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester for evaluation.
The school bus sustained major damage and some power steering and radiator fluids spilled out.
The State Police Accident Reconstruction team, under the guidance of Trooper Robert Frost responded to the scene to evaluate and take measurements at the accident scene.
Cadwell was issued a traffic ticket for Failure to Yield at an Intersection
