I used to drive for the same county just 6 months ago as bus 98. I pray the students and driver are all OK!. I hope to get in contact with a fellow driver soon. My thoughts and prayer are with the family.

I used to drive bus 98 about 6 months ago. I know the driver and possibly some of the students. I hated to take my school bus on route 17, due to 18 wheelers traveling pretty fast and I am sure the rain had some play in it as well. My prayers and thoughts are with the family.

Jyna I too knew the driver of the school bus. I was a fellow driver for Fauquier High about 6 months ago. I don't want to give out her name, but if you talk to her let her know I am thinking and praying for her students and for her. My bus number was 98 for Fauquier High last year and the year before that.

Brooke no longer drives a school bus. She had an accident in her school bus 2 years ago, and never came back to the bus after the accident. She is doing well though, and seems to be happy !! She is still singing and touring with her music.

I have been a school bus driver for Rappahannock County schools for 16 years now, however I also drove a school bus in Fauquier County approximately 17 years ago before I accepted a bus route in Rappahannock. I too hated traveling Rte.17 to and from Marshall with a bus load of kids. You are very correct Laura, those 18 wheelers are horrible on that rode. I do wish for everyones full recovery and luck for all of the students and the driver involved in the accident. If she is a longtime veteran driver for Fauquier, then I may know her ..... I wish her all the best.

You are so right. Route 17 between Marshall and Warrenton is a bad road. Back when I was in school it was still a two lane road and even more dangerous. I remember all too well the day that a friend of mine at school lost her Aunt to a fatal accident on 17S.

My brother was involved in this accident and there are many rumors in our small town as to what actually happened. If anyone is still reading this, could you please enlighten me? I do not wish to burn this woman at the stake so to speak. I simply want to know what happened from her perspective. I'm happy that she was ok but I'm becoming frustrated by all of the gossip about her. I suppose that's to be expected in a small town but I'd like to hear her side before, like many others, I assume any guilt on her part.

We are still awaiting the results of the State Police investigation of the driver. Hopefully, that will be known soon. Rt. 17 is a 4-lane 55 mph very safe road. Everyone including truckers know smokey is watching and they drive very safely. It is very mysterious how this accident happened.
