Churchill County School Bus Overturns…Only Minor Injuries

Fallon, NV…On April 12, 2013 at approximately 1354 hours Nevada Highway Patrol investigated an accident involving a Churchill County School bus. Preliminary investigation revealed that the yellow Thomas bus was traveling northbound on Testolin Road (an unmarked dirt roadway, located southeast of Fallon, NV.) driven by Susan Taddo, (58, of Fallon). Ms. Taddo had observed traffic traveling southbound on Testolin and she moved to the right. The bus’ right side tires traveled onto the soft dirt shoulder causing the dirt to give way and the bus overturned onto its right side into a ditch. Three children (ages 9-13) were on the bus and received minor injuries. The children were transported to Banner Churchill Hospital by Banner Churchill Ambulance. Ms. Taddo was not injured. The investigation continues by Nevada Highway Patrol. Trp. Trent Barnes #080 Fullscreen capture 4122013 44352 PMNevada Highway Patrol- Fallon
