Bus-truck accident closes part of Route 32

Maryland State Police closed Route 32 between Bollinger Mill Road and Route 91 for about an hour Friday afternoon as officials cleared debris after an accident involving a school bus and a truck.

Police said the bus, which was empty, was traveling south on Route 32 when a small truck headed north sideswiped the bus. The bus ran off the road and hit a utility pole.

The truck also hit a vehicle behind the bus.

The driver of the truck, whose name was not available, was charged with failing to stay to the right of center.
