Bus Accident

Wet roads and bald tires are being blamed for a pickup truck crashing into a school bus carrying 33 students in Adams County on Friday.  Christopher A. Bosley, 43, of Hanover, was seriously injured after his pickup truck crossed the double yellow lines and slammed head-on into an E&B Transportation bus carrying Bermudian Springs middle and high school students.

Police say Bosley was headed north on Carlisle Pike in Reading Township when he swerved into the southbound lane and into the path of an on-coming school bus.

After impact,  the school bus hit an embankment and rolled over onto its roof, police said.

Twelve students in total were taken to local hospitals for treatment. None of their injuries were life-threatening.

Students who were not injured were taken back to the high school where district personnel helped to reunite them with their parents.

School counselors will be available on Monday to talk to students.

Prior to the crash, witnesses told police they saw Bosley swerving all over the road . Investigators determined that the rear tires on Bosley’s pickup truck were very bald and likely caused him to lose traction on the wet roadways.

Bosley is on life support in the ICU at York Hospital.

Charges may be filed.


A bus carrying 33 students from Bermudian Springs High School was hit by a pick-up truck around 3 o’clock this afternoon after the driver lost control. The bus was hit head on and it went up an embankment and flipped over.

Of the 33 students on the bus, ten were taken to area hospitals, including three students and the bus driver who were taken to York Hospital.

The most severe injury a student received was a cut to the head. Meanwhile, the driver of the truck suffered what Reading Township Police officer William Ceravola called ‘a possible broken back’.

Ceravola says this could have been a lot worse saying, “This is the first accident I’ve seen like this in this area, of this magnitude”.
