No injuries were reported after an accident involving a Tiffin City school bus Friday afternoon.
State Highway Patrol Trooper Ivan Nunez said the bus driver, Melene Keckler, 49, of Tiffin, was cited with failure to yield after the accident, which was reported at 3:42 p.m. at the intersection of CR 38 and SR 53.
Keckler had been eastbound on CR 38 when she failed to yield right-of-way at the stop sign, colliding with a northbound vehicle on SR 53 driven by Linda Weininger. Nunez was unable to provide Weininger’s age or address.
Nunez said about a dozen children were on the bus at the time of the crash.
Weininger’s vehicle suffered heavy damage but the bus did not, Nunez said.
