2 injured in collision involving NKSD bus

Two people were injured and taken to a local hospital Monday after a collision involving a North Kitsap School District bus and a tree-service utility truck.

The incident occurred at about 3:15 p.m. in the 3500 block of NW Half Mile Road near Poulsbo.

When investigators and fire personnel arrived, they found the bus driver trapped in the driver’s seat, the Kitsap County sheriff’s office report says.

Three students went out of emergency exits but were not injured.

The bus driver was taken to a hospital with serious injuries but was in stable condition.

A worker from the tree service truck was thrown from the vehicle and transported to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
