WASHINGTON, CO, VA (WVVA)  Virginia State Police Master Trooper A.L. Kelly investigated a two-vehicle crash in Washington County Wednesday (Aug. 21). The crash occurred at 7:05 a.m. on Route 645 less than a mile south of Route 611.
 
A Washington County school bus was southbound on Route 645 when it began slowing to a stop to pick up passengers. As the bus slowed to a stop, its amber lights were activated to notify oncoming traffic to stop. A northbound 1997 Ford F-250 was unable to stop in time, causing its driver to lose control of the pickup truck. The truck ran off the right side of the road then overcorrected, came back onto the roadway and struck the stopped school bus. The impact of the crash forced the school bus into a ditch off the right side of the road.
 
The bus driver, Brandy L. Hoss, 25, of Bristol, Tenn., was wearing a seat belt and was not injured in the crash. None of the 15 passengers on board the bus nor anyone at the bus stop was injured.
 
The driver of the pickup truck, Jackie W. Fleenor Jr., 39, of Bristol, Va., was not injured in the crash. He was wearing a seat belt. Fleenor was charged with reckless driving.
