Kitsap Transit bus driver cited after nearly hitting two 12-year-old boys

Incident occurred Aug. 16 in East Bremerton

A Kitsap Transit bus driver was recently cited after an August 16 incident where two 12-year-old boys on their bikes were nearly hit by the bus, according to Kitsap County Sheriff’s Deputy Scott Wilson.

The incident occurred just before 9 a.m. at the intersection of Aegean Boulevard and Sunset Avenue in East Bremerton. The two boys had to jump off their bikes to avoid being hit by the bus, according to Wilson.

The 64-year-old female bus driver told authorities that she did not see the boys on their bikes and that she made too sharp of a left turn, resulting in a portion of the bus being in the eastbound lane of Aegean Boulevard where the two boys on their bikes were stopped. One boy did suffer scrapes while jumping out of the way of the bus, Wilson said.

The driver was cited for failure to drive on the right side of the road and did not show any signs of impairment, according to Wilson.
