Impaired driver hits parked bus at elementary school

Police reported there were no injuries, despite the crash being at peak drop-off time.

A reportedly impaired driver crashed into a bike rack and parked school bus at Kennydale Elementary School Wednesday, March 27 around 8:53 a.m. There were no injuries reported.

According to a Nextdoor post by Renton Police, the driver of a hatchback vehicle had just dropped off a child at the school. The driver then reportedly drove over a sidewalk, crashing into several bikes and the parked school bus.

Police said it was miraculous no pedestrians were struck during this collision, as it occurred around peak student drop-off time.

After further investigation, it was determined the driver was impaired.

“The driver was taken into custody for DUI and is facing criminal charges,” the post read.

Renton Police Traffic Units are investigating. The school had a traffic delay during the incident but is now back to normal operations.
