School Bus, Car Collide in Delaware, Driver Hurt

A school bus carrying children and a car crashed along a New Castle County roadway Monday morning leaving an elderly man trapped in his car.

The wreck caused traffic troubles along S Old Baltimore Pike at Albe Drive in New Castle shortly before 7 a.m.

No one on board the First Student yellow bus suffered injuries, said New Castle County Paramedics. The 86-year-old driver of the car, however, was trapped inside his rolled over car, said medics.

Medics took the elderly man to Christiana Hospital's trauma center for treatment for head, chest and lower body injuries. He was listed in stable condition, said medics.

No word yet on where the bus was headed.

As SkyForce10 hovered overhead, crews could be seen loading a car onto a tow truck as the school bus moved from the roadway.
