A traffic accident occurred at mile eight and a half on the Phillip Goldson Highway at around four this evening, just after Sky’s Grocery store in Ladyville. Thirty nine year old Ruth Meastre who lives less than half a mile from where the accident occurred, was reportedly leavinge Sky grocery store and heading home when it appears that the axel in her front wheel broke off.  Skid marks show that Maestre made efforts to stop, but still collided into a school bus heading in the opposite direction, driven by fifty six year old, Sandhill resident, Lincoln Olivera. At the time the school bus was filled with more than fifty students, luckily no one on the bus was injured. However, Maestre, her brother and three young children were taken to the hospital where she is said to have suffered severe trauma to leg and chest.
