(April 13, 2018) A school bus bringing children to Most Blessed Sacrament Catholic School in Berlin Tuesday morning was delayed by colliding with another vehicle while attempting to turn left at the intersection of Racetrack Road and Beauchamp Road.

No injuries were reported, and the children were delivered safely to the school.

The bus driver, Richard Fair, 77 from Milton, Delaware was charged by Maryland State Police with failure to yield while turning left.

The bus hit the second vehicle, operated by Brian Raschka, 32, of Berlin on the driver’s side, causing his 2001 Volkswagen to skid off the side of the road.

The bus had 24 students aboard at the time of the accident.

Along with state police, the fire and EMS from Showell Volunteer Fire Department also responded to the scene, as well as the Most Blessed Sacrament’s Principal, Mark Record, and several other school staff, according to state police.

Following the crash, the bus was able to drop off the children at school normally.

No hearing date for Fair has been set.
