Driver hits Durham bus; no students injured

Posted March 3, 2014

— A Durham school bus hit a car Monday afternoon, but no serious injuries resulted. 

According to the State Highway Patrol, Norman Epps was driving the bus carrying students from Durham's City of Medicine Academy. He made a left from Breedlove Avenue onto Wake Forest Highway into the path of a westbound car. The car clipped the front, left corner of the bus, and the driver of the car was taken to a hospital for evaluation.

Epps, 60, was charged with failing to yield. 

Troopers said the crash was not related to wet weather on the road Monday.

    Not defending the bus driver, but the skies were grey this afternoon and so many cars do not turn on their headlights; that makes it difficult to see them ESPECIALLY when the car is silver, grey, dark etc.
    my mom told me once when I was in my early 20s, turn your lights on-not so YOU can see so much but so that you can be SEEN....I think I've had them on since-esp in the rain.

    Looking at the story, the headline should be the other way around. Durham school bus hits another car.

    The headline makes it sound like the driver of the car was at fault.
