Car collides with Dunedin private school bus

DUNEDIN — A driver rolling through a stop sign crashed into the side of a school bus in Dunedin Friday morning.

According to deputies, witnesses reported a school bus from Athenian Academy, driven by 31-year-old Sarah Johnson, had the right of way as it was going eastbound on Virginia Street approaching New York Avenue.

Jovhan Perez, 19, was southbound on New York Avenue in his 1995 Honda Civic, approaching Virginia Street where there was a stop sign.

According to witnesses, Perez did not come to a complete stop and pulled into the path of the school bus impacting the bus on the left side. A 10-year-old boy complained of injuries to his leg caused by the impact.

The boy was treated by paramedics at the scene and his mother took him to a local hospital, deputies said. No one else was injured.

The bus sustained minor damage, but the Honda Civic was heavily damaged and had to be towed from the scene. Perez was cited by deputies as being at fault in the crash, and was issued a citation for violation of right-of-way.
