On Tuesday, a pick-up truck traveling on Babbidge Road slammed into the rear of a Falmouth school bus carrying 32 children. Police said there were no injuries. The truck was totalled. The 2009 bus sustained $10,000 worth of damage. The truck driver was a 16-year-old girl who was bringing her 11-year-old brother to school. The impact caused snow in the truck bed to smash through the rear windshield, embedding the boy to his neck. Police said the girl claimed she was blinded by glare from the sun and did not see that the bus had stopped to pick up children. Police still said the cause would be listed as driver inattention.
