Hudson Valley Woman Accused of Hit-And-Run With School Bus
A Hudson Valley woman is accused of fleeing the scene after hitting a school bus that was stopped dropping off students.
On Friday, New York State Police from the Wurtsboro barracks responded to a hit and run motor vehicle accident involving a school bus.
The bus was hit while stopped dropping off students on Burlingham Road in Bloomingburg, police were told.
Troopers responded and an investigation revealed that a red Jeep Liberty failed to stop for the flashing red lights of a stopped school bus and hit the bus while driving past the bus, police say.
A subsequent investigation revealed that the Jeep was allegedly driven by 24-year-old Lydia Haug of Bloomingburg. Haug is accused of fleeing the scene after hitting the bus.
On Saturday, troopers found Haug. She was interviewed and issued tickets for overtaking a school bus, leaving the scene of a property damage auto accident and crossing hazardous markings. The investigation is ongoing and police say more charges are pending.
No injuries were reported.
