No one injured in Eagle-Vail bus crash

EAGLE-VAIL — An Eagle County School bus with eight children on board was involved in a two-vehicle crash Wednesday afternoon on Highway 6 near Eagle-Vail. Nobody was injured in the crash.

At approximately 1:15 p.m. Wednesday, a full-sized school bus was westbound on Highway 6 just west of Stone Creek Drive when a dog ran across the road. The bus driver — 50-year-old Lloyda Mallow, of Gypsum — slowed to approximately 15 mph for the dog, and a 2008 Subaru that was following rear-ended the bus. The driver of the Subaru — 31-year-old Lindsay Crowder, of Leadville — was cited and released for careless driving.

The eight children on board attend Homestake Peak School in Eagle-Vail and were headed home at the time of the crash. The children range in age from 3 to 5 years old, and they were all wearing proper safety restraints. The bus was driven from the scene with the children still on board.
