A Lake County Schools
bus driver and bus monitor are being treated at South Lake Hospital this
morning after a collision caused the bus to flip. No students were on the bus.
The collision happened around 6:30 a.m. at Citrus Tower Blvd.
and Mowhawk Road in Clermont. The driver, Julio Lugo, was beginning his pick-up
route which would have ended with drop-off at Lake Minneola High School. Onboard
with him was Kathleen Farnsworth, a bus monitor.
Early reports indicate that a pickup truck driving
northbound on Mohawk failed to stop at a stop sign and struck the bus, causing
the bus to flip onto its side.
Lugo and Farnsworth were transported to South Lake Hospital.
Their injuries have been described as minor.
