Three People, Including 6-Year-Old Student, Injured in School Bus Crash

Three people were injured, including a six-year-old student, in a school bus crash on October 21. The bus was transporting eight students to Little Britain Elementary School and was traveling eastbound on Route 207 in New Windsor when it was hit by a commercial tree service truck that had passed the double yellow line while going westbound, the new Windsor Police and Washingtonville Central School District said. 

The fire department and EMS team also responded to the scene, shortly before 8:30 a.m. According to the police they managed to extricate the bus and truck drivers and a female student who was sitting behind the bus driver. The three of them were taken to a hospital; the drivers were in critical condition and the student, although in a critical state, was stable.

According to the school district, the seven other students on the bus were able to walk off on their own. They were also taken to St. Luke’s Hospital in Newburgh for observation. After their treatment, they were released. 

The police continue investigating the school bus crash. They said a third vehicle was involved in the collision but didn’t share any further information. For now, the identities of the injured victims aren’t shared with the public, though the injured girl’s uncle said that the girl was six-year-old and practiced yoga breaths to stay calm while the authorities were trying to free her from the scene.

Being injured in an accident can drastically change life as the person knows it. Facing medical treatments, recovery, medical fees and lost wages become the new reality. If you were involved in an accident in New York, besides seeking medical help, make sure you contact a car accident attorney to help you file for a compensation claim. Cellino Law is here for you.




Free Case Review




  • Thank you for your efforts on my behalf. I am very pleased (and surprised) at the amount of the settlement. We will use the funds to help pay down the debt on the truck we had to purchase after ours was totaled. Thank you again.


  • I am writing this letter to say how much I appreciate your services pertaining to my case. Your injury attorney took a hands-on approach and left me fully informed at all times as to where my case was going as well as how much ground we had to cover; leaving the final decisions in my hands but making sure that I knew all of the risks involved in the choices. I have dealt with a few law firms in my life on various different cases and this is the first time that I never had to call and/or track down my lawyer… because of this, I have and will continue to recommend Cellino Law to my friends and associates.


  • I want to thank your law firm for settling my lawsuit where others failed. You treated me with the utmost respect and care, because of your law firm the dream of owning my own home finally came true. For the first time in a long time, we're living out our dream home. Thank you a million times over. Thank you for making my dream come true.


  • I just want to let you know that I did receive my settlement check. More importantly, I want to thank you again for all you did for both me and my family. I could not be more pleased with my experience at Cellino Law. From the moment I first spoke with you I felt comfortable - you took a sincere interest in my case, clearly explained the process and effected a quick settlement. From this day forward, when someone asks if I can recommend a good lawyer I will, without hesitation, say "Cellino Law". Thanks again.


  • Joe and I just wanted to send you this note thanking you for the professional way you handled our lawsuit. Your kindness was extremely appreciated in a very difficult time. When we found out the people that caused the accident had no insurance, we thought our chances of receiving any settlement was nonexistent. Once we met with you and released you were able to help us our minds were put at ease. Your aggressive manner of handling the case exceeded our expectations. Please feel free to use us as a reference. Thank you so much and best wishes,

    Danielle and Joe

  • This letter is to thank Ms. Diane D’Andrea, assistant to Mr. George Gridelli, Attny for all the hard work, dedication, and attentiveness she showed during the representation of my case. She was always cheerful and ready to help in whatever way she could. All messages left for Mr. Gridelli were always relayed and Mr. Gridelli always promptly returned our calls. She was a very competent assistant. Cellino Law has proven to be a model of what legal representation should be. Throughout the 6 ½ years of this case, I have heard many horror stories from people with “bad lawyer stories.” We consider ourselves to be very lucky to have chosen Cellino Law and will always recommend you to those looking for good, honest representation with a personal touch.
