One woman died in this accident on Feb. 9 when her automobile and a school bus collided.

Rohrer Bus Wednesday evening released a statement regarding Tuesday’s fatal crash in the Mechanicsburg area that involved one of its school buses.

David Schrantz, vice president of Rohrer Bus, confirmed the details of the crash and noted that the company has worked with Cumberland Valley School District for more than 30 years, and “safety has always been and continues to be our top priority.

“While we cannot change what happened, we pledge our assistance in working with local authorities to understand what occurred and are cooperating fully with law enforcement officials to aid their investigation,” Schrantz said in a statement. “We are deeply grieved for the loss of life and injury and offer our sincere condolences to those affected by this tragedy.”

The crash occurred at 12:46 p.m. Tuesday when the driver of a school bus carrying middle school and high school students from the Cumberland Valley School District ran a stop sign at North Locust Point Road at West Trindle Road and struck a vehicle, according to State Police.

Sadie Wells, who was a passenger in the vehicle struck by the school bus, was killed in the crash, and three others in the vehicle were transported to Penn State Hershey Medical Center. Wells had been in the area acting as a missionary from Utah. The names of the other three passengers have not been released.

Two CV students suffered minor injuries in the crash.

Police continue to investigate the cause.
