School Bus Rear-ended by Car on Old St. Augustine Road in Jacksonville’s Southside

A school bus carrying students headed to Mandarin High School was rear-ended by a car on Old St. Augustine Road this morning. While initial indications are that no students were seriously injured, two students complained of neck pain and were taken to Baptist Medical Center South.

Jacksonville Fire Rescue said one person in the car suffered personal injuries. That person was airlifted to the hospital with serious injuries. Witnesses reported that the car never slowed before colliding with the bus.

Obviously, the driver of the car was either very distracted or suffered an incapacitating medical emergency. Sadly, such vehicle accidents can be caused by a person suffering a heart attack or seizure while driving.
