A Williamsburg-James City County (WJCC) Public Schools’ bus was heading west on Longhill Road while a 1991 Ford Minivan was traveling east in the westbound lane along the same road. Both vehicles swerved in an attempt to avoid a collision, but were unable to steer clear of one another.

The driver of the minivan, a 23-year-old James City County man, was flown to Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) with serious injuries.

The school bus driver, a 53-year-old York County woman and the school bus aid, a 59-year-old James City County woman, were both transported to Riverside Regional Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
