ARCADIA, FL. -- A Desoto County school bus driven by Annette Theresa Arguijo, 44 of Arcadia, with 37 passengers ran into a car Thursday morning. A very similar crash occurred Wednesday morning in Hendry county.
The bus and a 2005 Cadillac, driven by Timothy Taylor, 45 of Punta Gorda were both northbound on US-17. Taylor's vehicle had come to a stop while waiting for oncoming traffic to clear.
The bus was attempting to turn left into the driveway for Sun Bulb Inc at 1615 US-17 and failed to stop and the front of the bus struck the rear of the car. The bus driver stated she turned around to check on the passengers and when she looked back forward the other vehicle was stopped.
The bus driver was charged with careless driving. There were no injuries to the children or bus driver. Taylor had minor injuries and was taken to Desoto Memorial Hospital.
