Ontario County Sheriff's deputies detained a 17-year-old driver on suspicion of DWI after an Oct. 15 accident involving a Penn Yan School District bus. The incident occurred at about 4 p.m., just after the teen's vehicle purportedly ran a stop sign at the Phelps intersection of Trimble Road and State Route 488.
According to law enforcement officials, the teen's car struck the school bus, which was carrying a girls' soccer team to a game in Clifton Springs. Emergency medical personnel evaluated the bus' occupants at the scene of the crash. Reportedly, there were 21 girls traveling on the bus at the time of the incident, and emergency personnel transported three of them to a Clifton Springs hospital for precautionary measures.
