Sequim school bus collides with car on way to game; ar driver injured, none on bus hurt, troopers say

A 26-year-old Bainbridge Island woman was injured when a Sequim school bus carrying the football team and cheerleaders hit her car as it traveled to a game with Olympic High School, the State Patrol said.

No one was hurt on the bus, which carried about 40 students traveling to the Oct. 5 game, said Dave Ditlefsen, Sequim High School athletic director, on Oct. 6.

Cydney K. Wong was transported to Harrison Medical Center in Bremerton after the 4:22 p.m. wreck, the State Patrol said. On Saturday, hospital personnel said they had no record of her.

The crash occurred about 7 miles north of Poulsbo near the US Highway 3 intersection with Babcock Street, just south of the Hood Canal Bridge, the State Patrol said.

Wong was heading south on the highway and had stopped her 2001 Subaru Legacy to make a left turn when the 2016 Bluebird school bus, driven by George A. Stuber, 61, of Port Angeles, came around a turn in the road and collided with the rear of the Subaru, according to the State Patrol.

Olympic High School sent a bus to bring the players and cheerleaders to the game, and Sequim High School sent another bus to take them home, he added.

Both vehicles suffered damage; Wong’s car was towed away form the scene while the bus was driven from there, the State Patrol said.

The crash remained under investigation as of late last week.
