Tf nroa riffr A .nVtvil : lima ' A school bus driven by George Henry Best had delivered its first toad of children and was returning to the Warsaw high school for its second , load. The bus was headed, towards the school from highway, forty from the direction of Kenansvllle. About half way between the high' way and the school at the road In- tersection at Swinson's filling Sta tion a Dodge sedan driven- by a man named Price crashed Into the. bus, knocking it about ten feet and turning it completely over. The bus rested on the side hit by ' the automobile. The driver was said to have been going at a rapid speed and ap proached the' crossing with no brakes on his car. The Impact waa 80 heavy that the front of his au- tomoblle was completely demolish- ed and the body of the truck waa torn into smltherings. It waa said. If the bus had been loaded with children it would probably have cost several lives. The intersection is blind and is dangerous for an automobile to approach at a slow rate of speed. A hearing will be held shortly to determine who was to blame for the wreck. Edit Note: If the bus driver ! was at fault he. should be sever ely punished, the Times believes and if the driver of the automo bile was approaching as danger ous a crossing as that one la knowingly without any brakes no punishment is too good for he is just as guilty as he would have been If the bus had been loaded with children and a score of them killed.
