Driver on leave when school bus kills York woman, 70

YORK, Pa. (AP) – A school bus driver has been placed on administrative leave after a 70-year-old woman was struck and killed in York.

The York County coroner says Evelyn Miller, of York, was crossing a street when she was struck by the bus about 7:50 a.m. Thursday.

Shawn McGlinchey, a safety official for the Krapf Bus Co., says the driver has a “very clean driving record” and is being counseled to deal with the crash.

Police say the driver, who isn’t being identified, and four students on the bus weren’t injured.

McGlinchey says it’s routine to place a driver on administrative leave after an accident.

The driver hasn’t been cited in the incident, which remains under investigation.
