No injuries reported in school bus accident

NEW CASTLE — No students were injured in an accident Friday afternoon involving a Mohawk school bus.

According to superintendent Kathy Kwolek, the accident occurred around 4 p.m. on Martin Kelly Spears Road in Mahoning Township.

A car struck the bus, which was carrying about nine elementary students, near the intersection with Churchill Road.

Kwolek said personnel from Noga Ambulance were sent to the scene to examine the children, but none was injured.

Parents also were contacted, Kwolek said, and some who lived near the accident site arrived to take their children home.

Kwolek said she understands the driver of the vehicle that hit the bus was to be cited.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 fell from the sky in Donetsk, Ukraine, on Thursday, killing all 298 people aboard. Many are speculating that Russian rebels (supported by Vladimir Putin) are responsible for downing the aircraft. What do you think?

Yes. All evidence points that way.
No. Everyone is so quick to point fingers, but there's not enough evidence to support claims of Russian guilt.
I'm not sure. I'll just wait until the investigation is over to make up my mind.
What is up with these Malaysian Airlines planes? I know one airline I won't be flying any time soon...
