While the National Transportation Safety Board was investigating the site of a fatal bus crash on Friday they witnessed another crash, authorities said. Local residents say a stoplight at the intersection is needed.
Chesterfield Township residents near the intersection of Old York Road and County Route 528 looked out their windows in disbelief Friday. A day after a fatal school bus crash, yet another accident happened at the intersection.
The accident occurred while the National Transportation Safety Board was at the site Friday investigating the dump truck versus school bus accident that killed an 11-year-old triplet and injured 17 children Thursday morning.
Authorities speculated that the activity at the intersection could have distracted the drivers on Friday. But investigators still have to determine whether or not the blinking yellow light in one direction and the blinking red light in the other direction are confusing.
The school bus was driving students to Chesterfield Elementary School Thursday morning when it collided with a dump truck. An 11-year-old was killed in the wreck has been identified as Isabelle Tezsla. She's the daughter of New Jersey State Trooper, Sgt. Anthony Tezsla, as confirmed by police.
Isabelle is a triplet -- and her two sisters were also injured.
No one was seriously hurt in Friday’s fender bender, authorities say.
