Police have released the identity and condition of the truck driver involved in a school bus accident in Adams County on Jan. 11.

Investigators said that 43-year-old Christopher A. Bosley of Hanover was taken to York Hospital via ambulance following a crash involving a school bus. Bosley is on life support in the ICU and listed in “serious” condition.

Ten other people were injured in that crash Friday afternoon involving a
Bermudian Springs High School bus and a pickup truck near East Berlin.

Emergency responders told abc27 News that Bosley lost control on a wet roadway and crashed head-on into the bus,
causing it to overturn onto its roof just after 3 p.m.

Officials
said 33 students were on the bus. Ten were taken to hospitals for
treatment of minor injuries such as cuts and bruises, but none was
seriously hurt. An official on the scene said that the worst injury to a student was a cut on the head.

Kyle Brown, a Bermudian Springs junior who was on the bus, said the students were panicked and screaming.

“I have no idea how no one was seriously injured,” Brown said. “Miracle, is all I can say.”

The crash occurred on Route 94, known locally as Carlisle Pike, at the intersection of Round Hill Road in Reading Township.

Police
said criminal charges may be filed against Bosley because the
truck tires were bald and he failed to operate the vehicle at a safe
speed.

“It was a bad accident,” said Officer William Ceravola of
the Reading Township Police Department. “Thirty-three children on the
bus, no seatbelts, and it's on its roof. It could have been much worse.”

Carlisle Pike was closed between East Berlin Road and Lake Meade Road.
